* Unweighted base: n (boys)=6,720, n (girls)=5,557
The source provides the following information:
Bases exclude pupils who said they had ever drunk alcohol, but who did not answer the question about when they last did so. These bases are different from those used to measure how many pupils have ever drunk alcohol, and so estimates shown for the proportions of pupils who had never drunk alcohol are not definitive.
