A recent national survey of drinking in China revealed that 55.6% of the men and 15.0% of the women were current drinkers. Among respondents who endorsed alcohol consumption, 62.7% of the men and 51.0% of the women reported excessive drinking, 26.3% and 7.8%, respectively, reported frequent drinking, and 57.3% and 26.6%, respectively, reported binge drinking.

High-risk drinking behaviour has reached epidemic proportions in China.<ref>[http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/91/4/12-107318/en/ Alcohol and alcohol-related harm in China: policy changes needed]</ref>}}
