Diminution of the Alcohol Consumption in France  Recent statistics show that the alcohol consumption of France has diminished by one half, over a space of thirty years. In 1898 the total consumption, expressed in the form of absolute alcohol, was 1,800,000 hectoliters, which was the highest point ever reached. In 1913 the total had been reduced to 1,558,000 hectoliters, or a decrease of 242,000 hectoliters. Ten years later, after the war, the total in 1923 was only 1,035,000 hectoliters, which marks a decline in consumption of 765,000 hectoliters. In dividing these figures by the total population, it will be noted that the average individual consumption has dropped from 4.70 liters per person in 1898 to 3.96 liters in 1913, 2.67 liters in 1923, and 2.53 liters in 1926. A comparison of the individual consumption in 1898 with that of 1926 shows a decrease of 2.17 liters, or 46 per cent.
