#b#Trenton Drinks, The World Thinks#/b#

The investment website 24/7 Wall Street claims in a report that the Trenton statistical area, which includes the Route 1 corridor, holds the honor of being New Jersey’s drunkest city region, as measured by Centers for Disease Control statistics.

The site compiled data from a 2015 CDC survey, which defined “binge drinkers” as women who had four or more drinks in one session, or men who downed five or more. “Heavy drinkers” were those who had 15 or more drinks a week.

“In Trenton, 18.2 percent of adults report binge or heavy drinking, a slightly larger share than across New Jersey and the country as a whole,” the report said.

“According to the CDC, excessive alcohol consumption is more likely among households earning $75,000 or more per year. Trenton, one of the highest income areas in the country, fits this pattern. The median household income in the Trenton statistical area of $72,417 a year is roughly in line with the state median income but well above the national median income of $55,775 annually.”

The poll was taken before the 2016 presidential election.
