Abstract The statistics on incidence of alcoholism and alcoholic psychosis, number of patients admitted to hospitals for alcoholism and alcoholic psychosis as well as a level of alcoholic beverage consumption per capita in Belarus from 1970 to 1999 were analysed. Using correlation, factor and cluster analyses, a strong positive correlation was found between the incidence of alcoholic psychoses and level of vodka consumption per capita. The incidence of alcoholism correlates positively with a total level of alcohol consumption. The results obtained suggest that incidence of alcoholic psychosis and number of patients hospitalized for alcoholic psychoses to be a reliable indicator of alcohol-related problems in the society.
