The aims of the present study were:
to examine the trends of cirrhosis mortality for Ontario for a longer consecutive period of time than has been previously reported;
to examine the relationship between cirrhosis mortality and alcohol consumption for the years when reliable alcohol data were available;
to examine the data by cohorts, since there have been no reports in the literature of cohort analyses of cirrhosis mortality;
and to search for possible explanations for observed patterns.
