Bottom’s up!

Creator of first smartphone breathalyzer tells us who’s boozing it up the most, when and where.

For the first time ever, consumer Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) data is available, providing insight into alcohol consumption patterns around the nation. The data was collected anonymously from users of BACtrack Mobile, and smartphone breathalyzer.

"With BACtrack's technology, we are able to glean specific data, like the fact that June 22, 2013 had the highest average reading (0.115% BAC) out of any day in 2013," said Keith Nothacker, CEO and founder of BACtrack. "Our goal is to enlighten the general public on alcohol consumption habits so that they become more responsible drinkers."

We want to move to Montana or South Dakota!

According to the data, Montana and South Dakota have the highest average BAC results in the country, each with 0.10%. Rounding out the top ten are West Virginia (0.098%), Oklahoma (0.096%), Idaho (0.089%), Vermont (0.087%), Tennessee (0.087%) - and all with 0.086%, Wisconsin, Nevada and Massachusetts.

"Montana and South Dakota have the highest average BAC results in the country."

Conversely, the five states with the lowest BAC are New Hampshire (0.012%), Delaware (0.026%), Utah (0.031%), Arkansas (0.037%), and Wyoming (0.051%).

Californians have lower average BACs than New Yorkers: 0.01% less on average.
