Abstract: Official statistics were used to analyze mortality rates, from alcohol dependence in Brazil (1998-2002), defined by ICD-10 code F10, from alcohol dependence in Brazil (1998-2002). Male and female mortality rates amounted to 0.8 (4580) and 0.1% (515) respectively, of all deaths. These values corresponded to 83.3% of deaths from mental disorders in men and 34.8% in women. Mean male annual mortality rate in 1998-2002 reached 5.8 deaths/100,000 males. There were differences between ages brackets existed, 45-54-year old men (16.0 deaths/100,000 males) were the most affected. Even though the Brazilian mortality rate is lower than the Canadian one, women die younges, 46% of cases among 15-44-year old females. The south-eastern region had the highest male mortality rate in 1998-2002 (6.6 deaths/100,000 men). Underestimation factors of above data are acknowledged. Since mortality rates by alcohol are avoidable, young men from the southeastern region should be a priority target for health promotion and recovery programs.
