24/7 Wall St. compiles its list by looking at the percentage of men and women over 18 who report binge or heavy drinking in each state's metro level, along with other data. That information is taken from county research provided by County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, which is a joint program between the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Data from the CDC on alcohol-induced mortality rates is also used.
Despite the heavy drinking, adults in Green Bay apparently report fewer mentally or physically unhealthy days per month on average than is typical nationwide, according to 24/7 Wall St.
However, alcohol-impaired driving is a considerable problem in Green Bay: It's one of only five metro areas in the country where more than half of all driving deaths involve alcohol, the site said.
