According to statistics we only drink about 72 per cent as much alcohol per person as they did in the 1970s. When it comes to beer, we drink only 40 per cent of what they did back then.
What has increased, is our love of wine.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated that 21 per cent of the population are actually non-drinkers.
Statistics confirm that overall Australians consume the following amounts of alcohol in a week,
- 4.1 stubbies of beer
- 3.6 glasses of wine
- 2.9 nips of spirits
