Recent publications are listed on the Publications page of the ISD Drug and Alcohol website.
The Alcohol Statistics Scotland publication (or ‘bulletin’) was a biennial publication presenting the latest available information from a range of national data sources relating to alcohol, including routine data collection systems and surveys. The publication was divided into four main sections: the Alcohol Market, Alcohol Consumption, Alcohol and Health Harm and Alcohol and Social Harm. These bulletins are now discontinued and replaced by an expanded set of web pages on the ScotPHO website - Alcohol section , for each topic linking to the original sources of the information. For these years when no bulletin was published, the alcohol-related hospital statistics section was published as a separate report.
Recent topic-specific reports involving ISD-held or managed data are listed on the Publications page of the ISD Drug and Alcohol website. Generally only publications from 2010 onwards are included in this list.
