More than you might expect.
Last night’s night out was about a quarter of what you spend per year, according to figures released by the National Statistics Agency.
This week, it’s expected that the Australian Bureau of Statistics will publish a series of quarterly and annual figures about the number of people in Australia spending their money on alcohol.
This is likely to be a major story for a while, as the ABS expects the number will reach a record high this year.
The National Statistics Office will release quarterly and yearly alcohol consumption data for Australia on January 14, 2020.
