Aussie alcohol consumption at 50-year low, ABS says

Australians appear to be drinking less alcohol now than at any time in the past 50 years, according to figures released on Wednesday by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The ABS found there were 9.7 litres of pure alcohol available for consumption for every Australian aged 15 years and over in 2013-14 – the equivalent of 2.1 standard drinks per person per day. ABS spokeswoman Louise Gates said this was the lowest level of alcohol consumption since the early 1960s.
