Abstract Introduction PHE purchased one year of alcohol sales data, on and off-trade by local authority, to assess its suitability for inclusion as an indicator in the Local Alcohol Profiles for England (LAPE). Results Analysis of the data at a national level revealed a number of important findings which add to the evidence base about alcohol use in England. In particular, there are new findings related to the level of under-reporting of alcohol consumption in household surveys by product type as well as a quantification of the seasonality of sales. Analysis of on-trade sales per head by local authority revealed a strong positive correlation with visitor numbers suggesting that the variation observed in rates of sale through the on-trade is heavily influenced by non-resident drinking. A regression model was developed at local authority level to measure the relationship between alcohol sales and alcohol-related harms using the alcohol-specific hospital admissions measure. The model results suggest that the factors which best explain the variation in alcohol-specific hospital admissions are:deprivationoff-trade salesthe concentration of licensed premises in the local authorityONS area classification - a categorisation based on demographic variables from the census Conclusion In light of the results from the modelling it was concluded that off-trade sales are a useful and valid local public health measure and hence were incorporated into the Local Alcohol Profiles for England (LAPE) tool from March 2017.
