“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.”
