* = A good or bad year for us, depending on your perspective!
Commentary: Most of the top 50 cities in the Allergy Capitals lists are in the Southeastern U.S. The likely explanation is the highest pollen counts occur in the Southeastern U.S., which cause more allergies and so more medication use. These are two of three criteria used to determine the rankings. The data above can not be found in this format anywhere else on the internet.
