Binge drinking varies from one in ten adults (10.9 percent) at the low end of the spectrum to more than one in four (25.6 percent) at the high end. There is something of a binge drinking belt across the north of the country, running westward from New England, Pennsylvania and Ohio to Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota and Montana. Alaska ranks high too, suggesting that long, cold winters might play a role, though tropical Hawaii is in the top tier as well.

Mapping London Riots, ‘Deprivation’

mattstiles:

This interactive map, made with Google Fusion Tables, shows recent riot locations in greater London as red points. The colors represent “indices of deprivation” by “lower super output areas,” which appear similar to blocks or tracts in the U.S. Census. Deeper reds represent higher poverty, while blues represent more income.
