Fargo, North Dakota has earned a dubious distinction as the drunkest city in America.

The website crunched the numbers from a Centers for Disease Control study in 2011. They combined the percent of people surveyed who admitted to binge drinking with those who say they drank heavily within the past 30 days.

Fargo was at the top of the list with a combined 37 percent of the population.

Behind Fargo is Columbus, Nebraska followed by Missoula, Montana.

Overall, the United States is 53rd on the list of drunkest nations.
