Alcohol consumption by country

"China’s remarkable economic growth has created a middle class with cash to spend, and plenty of that disposable income appears to be going to alcohol.

In 1978, China’s per capita booze consumption was 2.5 liters of pure alcohol per year. By 2010, that figure was 6.7 liters. Making things more dramatic, more than half of the Chinese population aged over 15 years old—42% of men and 71% of women—are teetotallers."
