Behind the Data: Alcohol consumption by income bracket

We built this data set with a simple spreadsheet from polling firm Gallup based on a survey that asked people which type of alcoholic beverage they prefer.

Gallup grouped those responses by three income brackets: $30,000 or less, $30,000 to $74,999 and $75,000 or more.
