List of countries by alcohol consumption

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of countries by alcohol consumption measured in equivalent litres of pure ethyl alcohol consumed per capita per year, according to the most recent data from the World Health Organization. The methodology used by the WHO calculated use by persons 15 years of age or older.

All columns refer to 2011 only, except the columns "recorded" and "total". The column "recorded" refers to the average recorded consumption for the period 2003–2005. Unrecorded consumption was calculated using empirical investigations and expert judgments. Total is the sum of the first two columns. The last four columns are a breakdown of the (2005) recorded alcohol consumption by type. Beer refers to malt beer, wine refers to grape wine, spirits refers to all distilled beverages, and the column "other" refers to all other alcoholic beverages. The values were corrected for tourism only in countries where the number of tourists per year was at least equal to the number of inhabitants.
