These diagrams, broken out by biological sex*, indicate the highest number of drinks an individual consumed on a single occasion in the past 30-days of taking this survey.

For example, 29% of female students consumed 3 drinks on the occasion in which they drank the most in the past month.

One standard drink = 12oz. beer, 5oz. wine, 1.5oz. 80-proof liquor
