Methodology: Yelp data was gathered on drinking establishments, firecracker stores, party supply stores and party equipment rental stores. Additionally, the percent of each metro's population made up of people ages 18 through 34 was calculated using census data and the percent of each metro's population who reported binge drinking was pulled from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each metro was then ranked on each of these categories and an overall rank was derived from these rankings.
