A spokesperson for Get Licensed said: “The data we used for the number of bars and clubs was taken from Tripadvisor, while the number of pubs close to each location was taken from CAMRA’s whatpub.com.  

“We then compared this data to the populations of each town and city using data from The Geographist.  

“Additionally, we sourced the price of a pint from Numbeo.

“This figure was given as a price per 500ml, which we used to calculate what a pint measure would cost in proportion.  

“We also used Numbeo’s safety data to track a range of safety-related factors for each town and city. 

“We combined all of these factors into a single overall score, where each was given equal weighting.
