Statista dossier on alcohol consumption in the United Kingdom (UK)

This dossier presents a range of statistics and facts about alcohol consumption in the United Kingdom. In recent years there has been an emerging binge- drinking culture in the United Kingdom, with just less than one third of people aged between 16 and 24 years old having drank heavily at least once in the last week. High alcohol consumption can lead to a range of health risks such as alcoholic liver disease and cirrhosis of the liver, as well as anti-social behaviour.
