The 10 WORST STATES in AMERICA for 2019

  • Published on:  1/22/2019
  • In order to analyze which US states are the worst, we had to analyze the states with the worst crime, largest number of unemployed workers, bad weather, and least number of things to do.

    We threw a lot of criteria at this one in order to get the best, most complete results possible. Using FBI crime data and the most recent government census American Community Survey data, this is the criteria we used:

    Population Density (The lower the worse – meaning there’s less to do for indoor entertainment)
    Highest Unemployment Rates
    Adjusted Median Income (Median income adjusted for the cost of living)
    Low home prices
    A lot of uninsured individuals
    A high portion of uneducated adults
    High Crime
    High Poverty

    Our goal is to combine recent data, fun videos, and thoughts about local culture into bite-sized snacks of shareable information. We call it bite-sized regional infotainment. We try to paint a picture of what’s happening in a region based on “Friday Night Science” — how’d you argue at a bar. To do that, we gather data from around the web to help determine a wide array of factors about where you live, things like safety, desirability, and culture.
