Wirral Smoking and Alcohol Prevalence Survey (April 2017)

In November 2016 Wirral Borough Council commissioned Praxis to conduct a survey to update their database of information relating to smoking prevalence and patterns of alcohol consumption in the 20% most deprived areas of Wirral. This report summarises the findings of this survey, including analysis of trends and comparison with previous smoking prevalence surveys (the first baseline survey was carried out in 2009).

In total 2,902 interviews were successfully completed, from a pool of 5,000 residential addresses – a response rate of 58%. Interviews took place during November and December 2016 with a small number being completed in January 2017
