Per capita ethanol consumption by beverage type, United States, 1977–2021. To make the trend data more precise, AEDS revises data published in previous reports when the Census Bureau revises its population estimates. This report updates the 2010–2020 population estimates using revised estimates of the July 1 resident population from the Vintage 2020 and 2021 postcensal series (Single-race Population Estimates 2022).

Excessive drinking is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States, and it is also costly. It cost the nation $249 billion in 2010 (the most recent year of data available). Find out more about the impact of alcohol on your health by reading our factsheets on everything from alcohol and mental health to parenting. Since 2005, the overall amount of alcohol consumed in the UK, the proportion of people reporting drinking, and the amount drinkers report consuming have all fallen. At the end of this topic page, we provide a number of potential sources of support and guidance for those concerned about uncontrolled drinking or alcohol dependency.

Interactive charts on alcohol consumption

  • Researchers publishing in the Journal of Public Health Research found a strong association between the youth-appeal of marketing content of televised alcohol advertisements and the brand-specific consumption of both underage youth and adults.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 17% of U.S. adults binge drink.
  • This chart is shown for the global total but can be explored for any country or region using the “Change country or region” toggle.
  • This report updates the 2010–2020 population estimates using revised estimates of the July 1 resident population from the Vintage 2020 and 2021 postcensal series (Single-race Population Estimates 2022).
  • Death from excessive alcohol use is on the rise in Colorado, catching up to national averages, and the rate of binge drinkers is high.

This amount also doesn’t cover drinks or liqueurs based on whiskies, like Irish cream, which Costco also stocks under its Kirkland brand name. The store stocks a large selection of whiskies under its Kirkland brand name, pointing towards the level of demand. As of December 2023, there are seven individual Kirkland Signature Scotch whisky expressions on regular offer in the store. Its blended Scotch whiskies are a permanent feature, with various Speyside, Islay, and regular Single Malt scotches also available on rotation. Although these famous names might come at attractive prices, they may not be as good of a deal as some of Costco’s other whiskey offerings. Additionally, Costco stocks a few whiskey varieties that you might never have expected, like the elusive Pappy Van Winkle, which requires specific knowledge of when it’s released and how to procure it from the employees to nab a bottle.

  • However, previous studies of trends have not assessed underlying causes of deaths that are partially attributable to alcohol use, such as injuries or certain types of cancer.
  • The year before, Costco also offered its customers a limited-edition 15-year-old single malt Scotch.
  • But consuming a large amount of alcohol in a short period of time can also be deadly, as it may lead to alcohol poisoning or other dangers like motor vehicle accidents.
  • Again, the prevalence of drinking across North Africa and the Middle East is notably lower than elsewhere.

However, you’ll have to be somewhere fairly specific to visit these fabled stores. Costco Liquor is currently only located in Alberta, Canada, a province where you’re only able to buy alcohol in designated liquor outlets. As such, these stores are located right next to the regular Costco locations, but with a separate entrance, so you’ll have to go next door to get your Canadian whisky. If you’re in the United States, though, you’ll likely still have to get a Costco membership to purchase its range of whiskies. While the stores in some states, like Florida, separate the booze selection from the regular selection of products, you still have to flash your card to gain access.

  • It also includes binge drinking — a pattern of drinking where a male has five or more drinks within two hours or a female has at least four drinks within two hours.
  • Because Costco charges people to shop in its stores, it creates a sense of customer loyalty, where people feel as though they have to get their money’s worth and make the most of their subscriptions.
  • The map shows heavy drinkers – those who had an episode of heavy drinking in the previous 30 days – as a share of total drinkers (i.e., those who have drunk less than one alcoholic drink in the last 12 months are excluded).
  • Somewhat curiously, Irish Distillers Ltd. also makes Jameson, an Irish whiskey that is also available at Costco (for way more than its Kirkland whiskey costs).
