Alcohol consumption trends and patterns of drinking
This chapter describes alcohol consumption trends and patterns of drinking in a global perspective. The typical frequency of drinking and the amount of alcohol consumed per occasion vary enormously, not only among world regions and countries, but also over time and among different population groups. It is shown that variations in these ‘patterns’ of drinking affect rates of alcohol-related problems, and have implications for the choice of alcohol policy measures.
