This rate equates to 8,386 deaths recorded in 2005 and are based on a revised definition of alcohol-related death.

Death rates are much higher in males than females, and the gap between the sexes has widened in recent years. In 2005 the male death rate, at 17.9 deaths per 100,000 population, was more than twice the rate for females. In addition, males accounted for two-thirds of the total number of deaths.
