The Centers for Disease Control recently released statistics that ranked cities by the percentage of residents who drink heavily
(defined as men who have more than two drinks daily, and women who consume more than one) and binge drink
(men who down more than five drinks at a sitting on occasion, and women who polish off more than four). The stats, based on data from 2011, feature five Colorado metro areas. We've broken down the numbers to show how the quintet ranks in these categories here in Colorado as well as in the U.S. as a whole.
