Alcohol consumption per drinker

We’ve seen rankings for alcohol consumption per capita around the world. These tend to highlight where people drink and abstain, but what about consumption among only those who drink? The Economist looked at this sub-population. Towards the top, you see countries where much of the population abstains but those who do drink appear to drink at higher volumes.

Of course, it’s better to take this with a grain of salt until you see the standard errors on these estimates.
