The Drunkest Days in America

The arrival of December heralds the beginning of “the Drinking Season.” BACtrack, a company that makes smartphone-enabled breathalyzers, compiled data on 300,000 blood-alcohol content (BAC) tests in the U.S. to come up with this graph of the results over the calendar year. The graph is interactive at the site.

The results show a definite difference in how drunk people get on Super Bowl Sunday, Valentines Day, and St. Patricks Day compared to non-holidays. Strangely, New Years Eve shows lower BAC results than the other holidays. Although the differences in the days are quite believable, the raw data doesn’t tell us anything about the average American. You must keep in mind that people who test themselves from a portable breathalyzer are already disposed to drink more than the average person. -via The Washington Post
