Talk:List of countries by alcohol consumption

A general remark about Europe on the map[edit]

This map is not in accordance with the tables. I checked both the data of the corresponding Wikipedia Article and the WHO document that serves as reference. If the total consumption is shown then most of Europe should be in the 13+ liter/capita category. If only the recorded amounts are indicated then Hungary is below 13, while the Czech Republic and France is above 13. --GaborV (talk) 09:02, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Myth about Russian vodka[edit]

I'm wondering why Russian people are often asked in U.S. or Canada if they like to drink vodka.And in many Hollywood movies Russiand depicted as drunk.This article shows that in fact Russians drink less then most of Europian nations such as English,Germans,Spanish etc. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.0.228.58 (talk) 01:24, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Not so much of a myth: I won't let you in a great secret if I say that alcohol sales in Russia are controlled by private companies which are very often closely connected with organized crime. Especially in sectors like alcohol production and retail. Secondly, due to a widely spread tendency of retailers to evade taxes, lion's share of sales in Russia, especially in those controlled by organized crime, are unaccounted and unrecorded. Hence, there is no way for official Russian stats or WHO to draw up realistic numbers. So, don't hold your breath, this number for Russia is far from the reality. The real stats must be even worth. 174.91.99.220 (talk) 21:01, 21 February 2011 (UTC)Andrew

Do not confuse total average alcohol consumption with alcoholism, which remains appallingly high among Russian men: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Alcohol_use_disorders_world_map_-_DALY_-_WHO2002.svg —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kenif (talkcontribs) 19:32, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

America[edit]

No way america is 6* more than others

I got some news for all kinds of peops: #6, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, can drink all they want, but they are NOT a country. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.112.210.186 (talk) 05:22, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
How can the US Virgin Islands have ZERO alcohol consumption?? One of the main industries is rum-distilling!

Direnzoa (talk) 00:19, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Obviously a lack of data, just not reported that way. I thought the same way. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.188.82.72 (talk) 02:01, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Uganda[edit]

I'm looking at the linked map - Uganda is colored far too lightly. It's listed as the highest consumer on the planet, but the two darkest countries in Africa on this map are Nigeria and Burundi. Réunion and Swaziland also appear to be too light in color for their rankings. capnvan (talk) 09:47, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

I'll fix that, thanks for pointing it out. (as for Swaziland, it has two different figures, the map shows the lower one)Sbw01f (talk) 21:27, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Uganda is not currently on the list of countries, although it is very dark on the map. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kenif (talkcontribs) 19:23, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Uganda is one is still one of the darkest countries on the map, but still has no value on the list —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.2.250.239 (talk) 01:03, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

I am confused by the Uganda numbers - It has a total of 11.93 and an other of 14.52 - how does this add up? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.163.223.151 (talk) 18:44, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

New Discussion[edit]

A discussion has been started at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Countries/Lists of countries which could affect the inclusion criteria and title of this and other lists of countries. Editors are invited to participate. Pfainuk talk 12:25, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Countries?[edit]

New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Réunion… those are no countries (all the one I have listed are part of France's administrative borders). This article is misnamed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 113.151.4.122 (talk) 03:55, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

And shouldn't it be list of alcohol consumption by country? Vajrapoppy (talk) 17:52, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Order of countries[edit]

I was wondering what people thought about ordering by consumption rather than alphabetically. It would make different countries a bit easier to compare IMO. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.193.253.59 (talk) 16:40, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

I briefly wondered too, whether that might be specifically to discourage a competition attitude - I then remembered/realized that the small boxes next to the table headings allow an ordering according to whatever criterion, so relative comparisons are fairly easy. Still I agree, including a line number column would enhance the usability further. Summsumm2 (talk) 15:57, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
I just tried to work with the Template:Static column begin, but the alignment didn't work out - I'll learn and return! Summsumm2 (talk) 16:56, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

I just noticed that Poland is out of order ... over 13 liters per year, but it's in with the 9 liter per year group. Is there a reason for this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.111.131.156 (talk) 21:36, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

new data in 2010[edit]

Our local newspaper quoted a new statistic from the WHO about alcohol consumption per person by country. And the WHO webpage says (as of now) that they will update their website soon, and that the new information is available in an Excel sheet. Anyone interest in updating this page? -- 78.54.102.74 (talk) 18:17, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

According to http://www.who.int/substance_abuse/publications/alcohol/en/index.html the 2004 report is the most recent. "The Global Status Report on Alcohol 2004 is the second global status report on alcohol published by WHO. The first report was published in 1999." --90.84.146.144 (talk) 10:04, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
Well data for 2005 is available from http://apps.who.int/ghodata/, which is newer than 2003 at least.Grimboy (talk) 01:48, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

illegal alcohol market seem to be absent from data[edit]

For me, these figures are for sure false: I can tell you than for example polish on average drink way more than french do. I can also tell you that there is a big illegal market (undeclared, home made etc...) for vodka in eastern europe, and very little illegal market for alcohol in France. So I think these figures account only for the legally/taxed alcohol consumption. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.156.204.198 (talk) 13:46, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I can see a couple of problems as far as the United States data goes. One, it's not legal to drink in the USA until you're 21, so that's six years of data being fudged straight off the bat every time. Two, this is a bit confusing. Many places in the USA only allow beer that's 3.2% ABV, which is horribly weak and, obviously, 96.8% water and other ingredients. This leads to people chugging the stuff like it's water, which it pretty much is. If you're going by total liters consumed, four or five liters of 3.2% beer sure sounds a lot scarier than a couple of pints of something that's 6% to 10% ABV. Plus, four or five liters of "booze" brings in a LOT more tax money than a couple of pints. 69.110.106.4 (talk) 20:28, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Proposal to merge List of countries by beer consumption per capita into this article[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was NOT to merge... Fyunck(click) (talk) 06:57, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

This article is now complete enough that the article specifically about beer is no longer needed. --Lasunncty (talk) 23:36, 18 February 2011 (UTC)


Disagree: I prefer to have beer consumption statistics listed separately; many people are interested in beer statistics as opposed to generic alcohol stats.--Chimino (talk) 13:49, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
Disagree: Beer consumption (total) is different than alcohol consumption. Both lists are useful and both should be kept around. Faceless Enemy (talk) 18:44, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Disagree: Both lists should be kept separately. Niky cz (talk) 21:20, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
Disagree: The beer list has a very useful column which lists the total consumption (not per capita). If a merge does occur, please add this column. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.91.52.187 (talk) 09:47, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.


Malaysia ranking[edit]

Malaysia is recently ranked as number 10th in alcohol consumption, but in this page it appears that it has very low consumption.

Someone can verify this?

http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/SEAsia/Story/STIStory_671698.html

(Many other credible web sources also show the same news.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.120.46.227 (talk) 01:07, 24 May 2011 (UTC)


Sri Lanka Ranking Questionable (Have doubts on accuracy)[edit]

Sri Lanka is ranked for much higher consumption. This data seems very unreliable. Here is a link from WHO on Sri Lanka. http://www.searo.who.int/en/Section313/Section1524_10876.htm — Preceding unsigned comment added by Boruguru (talkcontribs) 06:22, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Unreliable data[edit]

Some of these data are obtained from surveys and are completely unreliable. Countries such as Mexico, USA, or Russia consume much more alcohol than stated here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.27.182.216 (talk) 15:07, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Malt beer[edit]

It is said that "beer refers to malt beer", but the article Malt beer says: "Malt beer is a beverage made from barley malt syrup, sugar, water, yeast and hops. It is very popular in Israel where it is called "בירה שחורה" ("black beer"). Malt beer has a negligible alcohol content." There seems to be some kind of confusion in the terms, I doubt if only that specific low-alcohol beverage is meant here. --Oop (talk) 11:55, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Mongolia[edit]

Something about the Mongolia data seems to be flawed:

a) it's extraordinary high - second leader Czech consumes less than half? b) the table is removing Mongolia from the top when sorting it via the 'total' column. Instead of 1st it only makes a 10+ position.

Can someone verify the data and correct??
