Alcohol Induced Deaths in WI

Alcohol-induced deaths rose nearly 25% in Wisconsin in 2020, the biggest one-year increase in more than two decades. This was just slightly below the national increase during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, but Wisconsin started with a higher rate of such deaths than the national average, and last year’s increase exacerbated a trend that warrants consideration of underlying causes and appropriate policy responses.
