This report was commissioned in June 2017 by the Welsh Government. It uses newly available datasets to update our previously published analyses of the potential impact on the population and population subgroups of different levels of minimum unit pricing (MUP) for alcohol in Wales. In particular, newly available data on alcohol consumption, from the 2016-17 National Survey for Wales, is included. The report also includes new analyses of the increases in alcohol taxation required to achieve the same effects on key outcomes as a 50p minimum unit price. Finally, it examines how the effects of minimum unit pricing and tax increases are differently distributed across key population subgroups.
