This is likely to be because people either consciously or unconsciously underestimate their alcohol consumption.However, it gives an insight into peoples’ perceptions of their drinking habits.Among drinkers aged 16 to 24 years, 37.3% reported binge drinking on their heaviest drinking day in 2016 compared with just 10.3% of drinkers aged above the age of 65 years.Finding generally higher levels of binge drinking among those aged 16 to 24 years could be due to the data capturing those who tend to drink a lot on a Friday or Saturday night and then not much else during the rest of the week.Back to table of contents In 2016, among adults aged 16 years and above, 56.9% of respondents drank alcohol in the week before being interviewed for the Opinions and Lifestyle Survey, the lowest level seen since our time series began in 2005 (64.2%) (Figure 1).This equates to around 29 million people in the population of Great Britain.

Specifically, this concerns males who exceeded 8 units on their heaviest drinking day (around 4 pints of normal strength beer or three-quarters of a bottle of wine) and females who exceeded 6 units on their heaviest drinking day (around 3 pints of normal strength beer or 2 large glasses of wine).In 2016, almost 4 out of 5 people (77.4%) in the highest income band (annual income of £40,000 or more) said they drank alcohol in the last week and alcohol consumption generally falls with the level of income (Figure 3).Around 3 in 10 (29.4%) people in the lowest income band stated that they were teetotal compared with less than 1 in 10 (9.0%) for the highest income band.When looking at binge drinking by age and sex (see Figure 2), for males aged 16 to 64 years, there tends to be very little difference in the proportion of those who “binged” on their heaviest drinking day.For females aged 16 to 24 years, the proportion of those binge drinking tends to decrease across these agebands.
