The Committee has identified key indicators for alcohol consumption and alcohol-related health harm:

  • volume of consumption – Total yearly per capita (15 years+) consumption of pure alcohol
  • pattern of consumption – Harmful drinking
  • alcohol-attributable health harm – Alcohol-attributable years of life lost

and indicators for some of the 5 priorities of EU alcohol strategy.
