Alcohol index in Sweden 2019, by age group

This statistic shows the alcohol index in Sweden in 2019, by age group. The index is based on a survey. That year, the index and thus the permissiveness towards alcohol was rising with the age of the surveyed Swedes. Whereas the index was 53.2 among the 16 to 24 year olds, it amounted to 77.8 among the 65 to 74 year olds. An index of 0 would mean that alcohol consumption meets with a big refusal, while an index of 100 would mean the total acceptance by the society.

Supplementary notes

This statistic is based on a survey with 4,141 respondents aged 16 years and older. Since 2010, the survey takes part annually and is conducted in the same period of each year.

The source adds the following information: "The higher the index, the more restrained is the attitude. Respondents had to decide whether or not agreeing to nine statements. By answering 'completely wrong', the highest index value is generated, while the answer 'completely correct' gives the lowest index value, which is the most permissive attitude to alcohol."

The statements used to calculate the index were as follows:
1. Drinking occasionally so that you feel affected.
2. Getting occasionally drunk at private parties.
3. Getting occasionally drunk at company parties.
4. Selling beer and wine to the audience at major sports events.
5. Giving alcohol as a gift to someone you do not know so well.
6. Getting drunk when eating dinner at a restaurant.
7. Drinking so much that you feel bad the next day.
8. Getting drunk when children are with you.
9. Drinking so much that it's afterwards hard to remember how much it actually was.
