Measuring the health-related Sustainable Development Goals in 188 countries: a baseline analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015

In it we might want to note the comments regarding the alcohol indicator.

Indicator:

Risk-weighted prevalence of alcohol consumption, as measured by the SEV for alcohol use, %

Details:

We revised this indicator to include six categories of alcohol consumption because national alcohol consumption per person does not capture the distribution of use. The SEV for alcohol use is based on two primary dimensions and subcategories of each: individual-level drinking (current drinkers, lifetime drinkers, lifetime abstainers, and alcohol consumption by current drinkers) and drinking patterns (binge drinkers and frequency of binge drinks). The SEV then weights these categories with their corresponding relative risks, which translates to a risk-weighted prevalence on a scale of 0% (no risk in the population) to 100% (the entire population experiences maximum risk associated with alcohol consumption)
