  1. Alcohol and all-cause mortality in Europe 1982-1990 : a pooled cross-section time-series analysis.

    Article - En anglais


    To test the relationship between alcohol consumption and all-cause mortality.


    Data :

    Yearly mortality rates and per capita consumption from 25 European countries between 1982 and 1990.

    Statistical models.

    This paper employs time-series cross-sectional data to model the relationships between alcohol consumption and all-cause mortality.

    The data are derived from 25 European countries in the 1980s.

    The statistical analyses controlling cross-sectional correlation and timewise autoregression were used to implement the econometric modelling.


    Increases (decreases) in the per capita consumption of 1 litre of pure alcohol were associated with increases (decreases) of 1.3% in all-cause mortality rates.

    The beverage-specific analyses indicated a significant relationship between consumption of beer and all-cause mortality only.


    The data show that per capita alcohol consumption, according to reported levels in Europe, is related to all-cause mortality and is thus of relevance to public health.
