The World's Drunkest Countries
A few weeks ago the travel section of The Telegraph newspaper discovered CartoDB. Ever since they have gone made mapping the world's data.
Their latest map shows the World's Most Soused States. The map uses data from the World Health Organisation (2014) to show the amount of alcohol consumption in each of the world's countries. Countries in the former Eastern Bloc are among the world's top drinkers. Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Russia, Romania, Ukraine, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia make up nine of the top ten countries.
Andorra is the only non ex-Eastern Bloc country to make the top ten, sneaking in at number 7 on the list.
The Telegraph's other recent maps rank countries based on population density, the threat from terror and the risk of natural disaster.
