- A new report on the alcohol harm paradox
Policy makers, health and social care professionals, and researchers have long been interested and concerned about the apparent relationship between health and socioeconomic status (SES). Previous research has shown a gradient in the risks of ill health by SES such that those with low personal or neighbourhood SES are much more likely to die or suffer from a range of diseases, including those related to alcohol (e.g. Makela et al., 1999). For example, males and females in the most socioeconomically deprived neighbourhoods of the UK have been estimated to be two to three times as likely to die from an alcohol-related condition than their counterparts living in the least deprived (Deacon et al., 2011). However, analysis of alcohol use behaviours suggests that there is little difference in consumption between these types of areas.
