Alcohol-Specific deaths in Northern Ireland, 2021

Date published: 13 October 2022

Statistics:

Correction notice: 19.10.22: Subsequent to the publication of Alcohol-specific death statistics on 13 October 2022, NISRA identified a coding issue whereby one case was given a code relating to alcohol in error. The impact of this correction is a small reduction of one in to the headline total number of alcohol-specific deaths, down from 351 to 350. This makes the total in 2021 the second highest on record rather than the joint highest,  as originally reported.
