25.11.2019 - In 2017, over 80% of the population drank alcohol. This share has remained stable for 25 years, while that of persons consuming alcohol every day has declined by half, decreasing from 20% in 1992 to 11% in 2017. By contrast, the share of the population that got drunk at least once per month has increased over the past ten years, reaching 16%. Men consume alcohol more often than women and in larger quantities but the gap between the genders is narrowing, according to the Swiss Health Survey (SHS) from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
