The purpose of this study was to analyze the prevalence rates of alcohol-related mortality - according to various indicators - in both sexes in Stockholm, Sweden.
A study of alcohol involvement at death was undertaken for all 668 deceased persons aged 15 through 54 years in 1987 in Stockholm.
Death certificates, autopsy information, police records, and information about earlier conviction were analyzed.
When different measures of estimation were compared, there were great differences in the prevalence rates of alcohol involvement.
