Abstract: This thesis studies two indicators of good health and well-being embedded in the United
Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; suicide mortality rate and harmful
use of alcohol. Firstly, socio-economic determinants of suicide mortality rate and
alcohol per capita consumption in countries of the European Union are analysed. As an
econometric approach, panel data methods are utilized. Among selected economic and
socio-demographic variables, suicide mortality rate is found sensitive to unemployment
rate, whilst economic growth, fertility rate and female labour participation rate are
concluded not have a significant impact. Model of alcohol consumption confirms
relatively higher sensitivity to changing income than to alcohol price level. First
differencing estimation produces income and price elasticity within range of prior
estimates. Secondly, an ARIMA forecast is performed for the EU and its member states
to assess current prospects of attaining targets corresponding to the two health quality
indicators in question by year 2030. For the EU collectively, forecasts suggest rather
favourable development, although considerable disparities are present among individual
member states.
