Do You Live In A Miserable City?

This is always one of those things that some statistician puts together based on different statistics that you may find interesting, irrelevant, or offensive.  But, for me, it’s always interesting as we know the factors that go into this list contribute to health.

This list of America’s 20 Most Miserable Cities is based on Forbes.com’s Misery Measure which looks at unemployment, taxes, commute time, violent crime, and success of the city’s pro sports teams.  Interestingly, it also looks at corruption of local officials.

  1. Cleveland, OH
  2. Stockton, CA
  3. Memphis, TN
  4. Detroit, MI
  5. Flint, MI
  6. Miami, FL
  7. St. Louis, MO
  8. Buffalo, NY
  9. Canton, OH
  10. Chicago, IL
