Michigan, Indiana and Ohio each have 3 cities on this '50 Most Miserable Cities' list for 2019.

The Business Insider published their 50 Most Miserable Cities in the U.S. last week.  Here's how they came up with their findings,

We've identified the 50 most miserable cities in the US, using census data from 1,000 cities, taking into consideration population change (because if people are leaving it's usually for a good reason), the percentage of people working, median household incomes, the percentage of people without healthcare, median commute times, and the number of people living in poverty.  (See the data and how we weighted it here.)

Unfortunately, Michigan had a strong showing with 2 cities in the top 10.  Maybe we should call that the bottom 10.

1 Gary, Indiana

2 Port Arthur, Texas

3 Detroit, Michigan

4 Passaic, New Jersey

5 Newark, New Jersey

6 Pine Bluff, Arkansas

7 Flint, Michigan

8 Camden, New Jersey

9 Warren, Ohio
