Most Hungover States Research Summary

  • Colorado is the most hungover state in the US, with an average hangover search volume of 100.

  • South Dakota is the least hungover state in the US, with an average hangover search volume of 0.

  • Louisiana likes champagne the most on New Years, while South Dakota likes it the least.

With the holidays coming to an end, the drinks have slowed and the hangovers have commenced.

We looked into it and found that there are some states where drinkers can hang. Then again, there are also some states where drinkers can’t hang.

And those states are battling the worst hangovers in the U.S. right now.

There’s just something about starting your new year off right, and with a hangover your year is doomed from the beginning.

So we found the states that searched the most for a hangover cure right around New Year’s Day. Our advice? Maybe just drink less next time.

Other Interesting Findings

  • Colorado was the most hungover around New Years’. Maybe it’s the high altitude in combination with the alcohol or maybe residents are just excited for a nightcap after a long day on the slopes.

  • Alaska, North Dakota, Rhode Island, and South Dakota weren’t hungover on New Year’s. Perhaps this is where the hangover cure is located.

  • Louisiana was 32 on our list of most hungover, which is interesting because according to data that we found, the state loves champagne the most. That also happens to be the drink of choice for New Year’s.

  • North Dakota likes champagne the least so it makes sense why no one is hungover there on New Year’s.

  • The place where the New Year celebration really kicks off is in New York. What’s surprising is that the state only comes in at No. 7 when it comes to being most hungover.
