Official statistics announcement

Alcohol usage in the UK armed forces

This ad hoc statistical bulletin has been developed to meet the public interest in alcohol consumption behaviour in the UK armed forces. It provides the numbers of UK armed forces personnel who have completed the World Health Organisation (WHO) validated Alcohol Usage Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT C short version), and how many are in each risk category for alcohol drinking behaviour. This bulletin supports the MOD’s commitment to release information where possible.
