According to The Roy Morgan Alcohol Currency Report, in a 4 week period, 69.3% of Australians drink alcohol.
The report revealed that in an average 4 week period Australians drinking trends are as follows,
- 39.1 per cent drink beer
- 44.5 per cent consume wine
- 27.5 per cent drink spirits
- 13.6 per cent consume cider
Unsurprisingly men drink more than women with 75% drinking in an average 4 week period, compared to 65% of women.
Although men drink more than women, drinking among males has declined over the past 5 years.
