Drunkest cities 2011


Named of Drunkest cities 2011 

Drunkest cities 2011 - Drunkest cities named, The Daily Beast has named the top 25 drunkest cities in the U.S., taking into account factors like the average number of drinks consumed by residents each month,
The GreatFun come out with their second annual drunkest cities list. They relied on self-reported data on how much people drink in their cities and then also used binge-drinking figures from the CDC to come up with the rankings. It's actually a pretty eclectic Top 10. For the rest of the list, see the Great Fun.

Tis the season to throw back a few—eggnog for the holidays, hot toddies for the chill air, and Champagne for the New Year’s festivities. But for some urbanites, every season is drinking season. Certain cities, like Milwaukee, have a strong beer-brewing industry. Others may just have a thriving bar culture.



To compile the second annual list of the “drunkest” cities in the U.S., The Daily Beast first analyzed data from Experian Simmons, a leading market-research firm, which provided data on the average number of alcoholic drinks per month the residents of more than 200 cities across the country reported to have consumed in a survey from earlier this year. As well, we considered the percent of the population that are either binge drinkers or heavy drinkers for each metro area, according to the most recent data available from the Centers for Disease Control. The average number of drinks was given twice the weight of the heavy- and binge-drinking population for the final rank.
