Alcohol harm greater for city women

Greater availiabity and affordability of alcohol may have caused "an explosion of related harms" in previously unrecognised groups of women, Australian research shows.

A Victorian study has found alcohol morbidity increased from 39 per 10,000 residents to 53 per 10,000 residents from 2001 to 2010, with significantly larger rises seen in women aged 25-64 and those living in metropolitan areas.
