Finland - alcohol related death statistics
Alcohol claimed about 2,200 lives in Finland last year, up by about 9% from the year before, according to Statistics Finland.

“Increase was recorded mainly in the number of deaths resulting from alcohol-related liver disease, while the number of deaths resulting from other alcohol-related causes remained roughly unchanged,” Statistics Finland commented.

Alcohol remained the biggest killer of working-age Finns, followed by ischaemic heart disease, accidents and suicides.
