Facts and Figures about Alcohol

The UK Department of Health reported in 2003:

  • In England in 2001, almost two fifths (38%) of men had drunk more than 4 units of alcohol on at least one day in the previous week: about one fifth of women (22%) had drunk more than 3 units of alcohol on at least one day in the previous week.
  • In 2001, 21% of men had drunk more than 8 units of alcohol on at least one day in the previous week, and 9% of women had drunk more than 6 units.
  • In 2001, average weekly alcohol consumption in England was 16.9 units for men and 7.5 units for women.
  • In 2001, 27% of men and 15% of women aged 16 and over drank on average more than 21 and 14 units a week respectively. Drinking at these levels among men has remained stable at about 27% since 1992: for women it has risen from 12% to 15% in the same period.
  • In 2002, about a quarter (24%) of pupils in England aged 11-15 had drunk alcohol in the previous week: The proportion doing so has fluctuated at about this level since the mid 1990s.
  • Provisional estimates suggest that in 2002, 6 per cent of road traffic accidents involved illegal alcohol levels, and that these accidents resulted in a total of 20,140 casualties.
