In recent years, alcohol-related health and social problems have become a serious concern in Japan because of the marked increase in per capita alcohol consumption.
To facilitate forming a well-balanced policy on alcohol, the economic burden of alcohol abuse on Japanese society was estimated and has been presented in this study.
In 1987, the alcohol attributable.costs of medical care were estimated at Y1,095.7 billion, representing 6.9% of the total national medical expenditure.
The present amount of lifetime economic value based on age and sex for the Japanese population was calculated using the human capital method to estimate the alcohol attributable mortality costs.
