This graph about drinking patterns tells an interesting story. On the x axis we have frequency of drinking and on the y axis getting drunk during the last 30 days among European and American 15- and 16-year-olds in 2003. While Denmark, UK and Ireland have a lot of drunkenness, they don't consume most alcohol. The Dutch do drink most, or most often, but do not get drunk that often. The Nordic countries have all very low freqeuncy of drinking but average probability of getting drunk, which seems to be the effect of expensive alcohol. There probably wouldn't be a straight relationship between the two variables.
