We looked at all apartments in Atlanta and rated them on the number of nightlife businesses within a half-mile radius. We used an exponentially decreasing scale based on distance from the apartment. For instance, bars located across the street from a specific property would carry more weight than those a quarter-mile away. Our counts come from commercially available business listings and may not reflect recent openings and closings.
