Freitag 29. Oktober 2010 von htm

Data is provided by the WHO Global Information System on Alcohol and Health (GISAH). The indicator on total alcohol consumption is defined as the recorded amount of alcohol consumed per adult (15+ years) over a calendar year in a country, in litres of pure alcohol. The indicator only takes into account the consumption which is recorded from production, import, export, and sales data often via taxation. Population data is based on midyear resident population (15+ years) of the UN World Population Prospects, medium variant. In order to convert into litres of pure alcohol, the alcohol content of beer, wine, and spirits is considered to be 5%, 12% and 40% respectively. Specific conversion factors are used for other, less common types of alcoholic beverages. (Source: EUROPEAN COMMISSION HEALTH AND CONSUMERS DIRECTORATE-GENERAL10/29/10)
