Gallons of Alcohol Consumed in the United States Per Capita Infographic
An estimated 88,000 people die from alcohol-related incidents annually in the United States (62,000 men and 26,000 women), making it the fourth leading preventable cause of death. In 2014, alcohol-influenced driving fatalities accounted for 31% of overall driving deaths. In 2015, 26.9% of people ages 18 or older reported that they had engaged in binge drinking within the past month in the United States. 7% stated that they engaged in heavy alcohol consumption, which is defined as binge drinking on 5 or more days in the past month. How binge drinking is defined varies on the source. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) defines binge drinking as 5 or more alcoholic beverages for men and 4 for women during the same occasion, at once or within a couple of hours. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines it as a pattern of drinking that elevates blood alcohol concentration levels to 0.08 g/dL. These numbers show that alcohol abuse is a significant issue in America. This infographic breaks down the per capita consumption in each state.
