Data visualisation: Regular drunkenness

This visualisation allows you to explore HBSC's data for young people who report having been drunk 10 times or more.

Alcohol use is one of the major risk factors for morbidity and mortality worldwide and contributes to more than 60 different causes of ill health, constituting an enormous burden for individuals and societies.

Risky drinking during adolescence, including frequent drinking and drunkenness, is associated with adverse psychological, social and physical health consequences, including academic failure, violence, accidents, injury and unprotected sexual intercourse. Moreover, alcohol use can disrupt brain development in young people, particularly in the cortical region, which influences cognitive, emotional and social development.
