Model-based appraisal of minimum unit pricing for alcohol in the Republic of Ireland

In 2013, the Department of Health, in conjunction with Northern Ireland, commissioned the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group (SARG) at the University of Sheffield to conduct a health impact assessment as part of the process of developing a legislative basis for minimum unit pricing.  The health impact assessment studied the impact of different minimum prices on a range of areas such as health, crime and likely economic impact.  It also compared minimum unit pricing to other pricing policies.
