Among European GenZ, Germans drink alcohol the least often

A YouGov analysis based on data from YouGov Global Profiles on alcohol consumption by young Europeans

21-Jul-2022 - Germany
Young people in Generation Z (18 to 24 years old) drink less alcohol in Germany than older age groups. This is shown by data from YouGov Global Profiles: Just under half of German GenZ (49 percent) say they do not drink alcohol at all. This is more than the German average (46 percent). The age comparison shows that respondents aged 45 to 54 are the least likely to abstain from alcohol (41 percent).

In comparison with other European countries, the German GenZ also stands out with the lowest alcohol consumption: While the Swiss and Portuguese are the least likely of the nine countries surveyed not to drink alcohol (30 percent each), in the United Kingdom it is 43 percent who abstain from alcohol. However, German 18- to 24-year-olds are the most likely not to drink alcohol (49 percent).

These findings are based on April 2022 data from YouGov Global Profiles, which uses more than 1,000 uniformly collected questions in 43 countries around the world to analyze target groups in the most important markets for companies. The tool tracks the habits, behaviors, and attitudes of consumers worldwide.
