Mommy drinking is on the upswing—but women without children still drink more

Men and women are continuing to increase binge drinking, regardless of parenting status, according to the latest study at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Men and women with children reported consistently lower levels of binge drinking than those without children, and men without children consistently report the highest levels of binge drinking overall; yet nearly all groups increased binge drinking in the past decade. The largest increases in binge drinking were reported among women ages 30-44 without children—from 21 percent reporting binge drinking in 2006 to 42 percent in 2018. The exception was young men (ages 18-29) with children, the only group for whom binge drinking declined. The findings are published online in PLOS Medicine.
