Description: In March 2011, the MESAS baseline report was published. This included trends in per adult consumption estimates based on alcohol sales data for 1994-2009 and summary information regarding the price at which off-trade alcohol was sold through the off-trade. This report updates these figures with 2010 data and presents new analysis to inform the development and evaluation of Scotland’s alcohol strategy.
