Alcohol-related deaths in England

Infograph about alcohol-related deaths in England

Click on the image to enlarge it

This is an infograph divided into two parts. The top part shows the heaviest drinking day in the week (England , 2008): each day is represented with a bottle of wine: the heavier the consumption on the day, the bigger the bottle. On Saturday things look tipsy (if not drunk); Thursday is the most sober day.

The bottom part shows alcohol-related deaths in England between 2001-2008: there is an increase of 23.6%. Through the years, the proportion of men / women who die because of alcohol is relatively stable: 65% of the victims are men and 35% are women.

Inspiration for this infograph came from an article on The Guardian.
