Illinois and Iowa Among the Drunkest States in America
According to Bloomberg, Illinois and Iowa are both among the top 10 most drunk states in America.
The rankings, based on a percentage of people who have binge drank in the last month, puts Iowa at #7 most drunk, and Illinois as the 10th drunkest state. Missouri ranks #23.
25.84% of Iowans admit to binge drinking in the last 30 days, compared to 24.91% of Illinoisans. Missouri's binge drinkers come in at 22.83%.
The drunkest state in America is in fact, not a state. The District of Columbia has a whopping 30.10% of citizens who admit to binge drinking. Considering that congress is in town, that's probably not a big surprise.
The top 10 drunkest states are:
- 1. District of Columbia
- 2. North Dakota
- 3. Rhode Island
- 4. South Dakota
- 5. Wisconsin
- 6. Minnesota
- 7. Iowa
- 8. Massachusetts
- 9. Louisiana
- 10. Illinois
Apparently folks in the Dakota's really like to get their drink on. The most sober state? Utah. Only 15.65% of residents there claim to binge drink.
