Alcohol-related deaths in Denmark 2012-2019, by age group

From 2007 to 2012, the number of deaths in alcohol accidents in Denmark decreased strongly. Since then, it fluctuated but grew generally again and amounted to 37 deaths as of 2019. Most alcohol related deaths affected people aged between 25 and 44 years, and between 45 and 64 years. In 2019, there were around 10 alcohol related deaths in both of these age groups. For the age group of 18 to 24 years, the total amount of deaths in alcohol accidents increased during the overall time period from 2012 to 2019, from five to six deaths.

Gender comparison

Noticeable is that the number of male deaths due to alcohol related accidents was higher than the number of female deaths in every year of the ten-year period from 2009 to 2019. A number of 31 Danish men and six Danish women died in 2019 in accidents caused by alcohol. Compared to the other Nordic countries, Denmark has quite low restrictions on the sales of alcohol. It can be bought easily in all kinds of supermarkets and convenience stores.

Total number of deaths

The total number of deaths in Denmark remained roughly the same in the years from 2009 to 2019. In 2019, nearly 54 thousand Danes died. In this year, the difference between the number of deaths between both genders was very low as only a little more men than women died.

Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "The statistics only include injuries reported by the police. In order to examine the socalled underreporting of figures Statistics Denmark has since 1996 conducted a study where data on persons treated by casualty wards have been included. The studies have shown that the total number of injuries is much higher than the number registered by the police. However, the coverage with respect to persons killed is almost 100 per cent. "
