    1. I wonder how it would compare if you broke down the US by state. I’m betting that places like Utah are bringing down our average.


    2. They’re gonna need a hell of a lot darker red to deal with my neck of the woods.


    3. litres per person….but it doesn’t state the timeframe…daily, month, a year? I don’t drink 12 litres of Alkohol in a year (or two) but I know people who kill that in a week, so that’s kinda important for a statistic, right?


      • That is called “average”, it’s written there.

        I think it’s total two years amount of pure alcohol. So you have to drink over two bottles of vodka, to be counted as 1 liter. Pity, that’s scale ends at 12,5…

        Oh, wait! Thank you internet.


        • Even still, average doesn’t really tell you that much. If the average consumption for (let’s say) Australia was 11.0 liters/year, does that mean everyone drank about 11 liters a year, or were half of them tea-totallers, and half of them drank 22 liters a year?

          The most conservative estimates of how much alcohol is dangerous (assuming you don’t take it all at once and drive into a tree, etc.) is 40 ml in a day.

          By that logic, a perfectly happy and robust person could have their four beers over the course of a day, every day, and clock in at a staggering 14.6 liters per year, while some binging frat boy could go out every other friday during the school year and slam 16 shots in a row and come up below 12.5 liters a year.
