In the last month the Russians happened to meet with the facts of violation of the law regulating the trafficking and consumption of alcohol. Thus, most Russians show cases drinking alcoholic beverages in public places (60%). Failure to comply with other laws in everyday life a little less common: four out of ten Russians encountered cases of the sale of alcohol in public places (41%) and the third — with the sale of the areas adjacent to the child care centers (34). Another 31% have personally seen how alcohol is sold to minors, 29% — advertising on radio / TV / in the movies, while 27% say cases of the sale of alcohol in non-stationary outlets. Russians are least likely to report the facts of the sale of alcohol from 23.00 to 8.00 (23%) and advertising in the audio / video / print products to minors (19%).

 Almost one in five (18%), Russians faced with a situation where he could not buy alcohol because of the ban on the sale of his night. And respondents still found ways out of this situation, 21% will still find places that sell alcohol, despite the ban, 18% — rely on their existing stocks, 7% — were taken at a friend’s, and 2% — were drinking alcoholic drinks in the bar. However, 26% say that the situation can not buy alcohol they refused to use it in the evening, 10% — waiting allowed to buy time, and 9% of treated beer.

Half of Russians (50%) tend to give a bad score for the effectiveness of the law to ban the sale of alcohol at night. Most often feel poorly (53-54%), Russians are low-income (53%), residents of medium-sized cities and one million (by 56%) and those who themselves consume alcoholic beverages (51%). More positive about 43% of the respondents, as a rule, respondents with secondary and higher education (45-47%), with high-income countries (47%) and residents of the two capitals (54%).

 

Well, a little bit of yourself.

It is so obvious link between alcohol consumption and the set all sorts of rubbish. The problem is how to estimate the amount of alcohol consumed. There is, it turns out, is quite simple and reliable way to assess the relative consumption of alcohol. This — the number of alcohol poisoning deaths.

Unfortunately, I have not found a fresh ready-made graphs on the subject, he somehow rummage, and introduce the public to review. But here is one chart — I have. Still, though, in 2008.

But look: The consumption of alcohol is reduced further, as said above, and opinion polls.

 

PS I know that the top graph is wrong, do not throw the empty dishes, plz. I wanted clarity. :)
