Aims:The aim of this study was to examine the distribution of alcohol outlets by area deprivation across Glasgow, Scotland.Methods:All alcohol outlets were mapped and density per 1000 residents and proximity to nearest outlet calculated across quintiles of area deprivation.Results:The socio-spatial distribution of alcohol outlets varies by deprivation across Glasgow but not systematically. Some deprived areas contain the highest concentration while others in similar deprivation quintiles contain very few.Conclusions:Considerations of the local context are important in examining access to alcohol but more research is also required on purchasing behaviour.
