What does this indicator measure?

The number of liquor stores calculated as a rate per 100,000 population is a good way to determine if an area's density of stores is higher or lower than the national or state average.

Why is this indicator important?

A high density of liquor stores can contribute to multiple health and safety problems in a community, including higher rates of alcohol-related hospitalizations, drunk driving accidents, and pedestrian injuries.
