Life in the Drunk Lane: America's Top Ten Drunkest Cities
I'm always amused what some 'sights' do on the data collecting front. For example, The Daily Beast revealed 40 cities who drink the most in the U.S. based on the average number of drinks consumed per person in a month.
Jacksonville, Florida was last at #40, Philly was #20 and Seattle came in #30. And number one? The midwest, where else?
Stats for the #1 drunkest American city was Milwaukee Wisconsin:
Average drinks, per person, per month: 12.76
Percent of adults who are heavy drinkers: 7.1
Percent of adults who are binge drinkers: 21.8
Deaths per 100,000 residents from alcoholic liver disease: 3.9
The top ten list below.
1. Milwaukee, WI
2. Fargo, ND
3. San Francisco, CA
4. Austin, TX
5. Reno, NV
6. Burlington, VT
7. Omaha, NE
8. Boston, MA
9. Anchorage, AK
10. San Diego, CA
