Alcohol-Related Deaths In Wisconsin Jump By 25%

The Wisconsin Policy Forum reports alcohol-related deaths in the state were up by almost 25 percent according to data released Thursday.  The numbers come from 2020 when one-thousand-77 Wisconsin residents died of alcohol-related causes.  That was an increase from 865 in 2019.  The report was based on death certificates.  The numbers don’t include people who died in drunken-driving accidents or those who were killed during alcohol-fueled violence.  The state of Wisconsin has a history of binge drinking and high alcohol consumption.
