The printed part of report presents an overview and comparative analyses of the alcohol situation on a regional and global basis, including comparisons of individual countries using indicators such as alcohol use, prevalence rates and drinking patterns, and mortality trends. The CD-ROM contains individual country profiles for all member states for which sufficient data were available are presented. The indicators covered are trends in adult per capita consumption, prevalence/drinking patterns data, information regarding traditional and/or locally brewed alcoholic beverages, unrecorded alcohol consumption, health and social problems, and the social and economic costs of alcohol abuse.--Publisher's description.
