    1. I wonder what are the basis for coming up with the list of miserable cities in U.S.. Although the recession is currently still happening, keep in mind that other country suffers more. So if poverty would be the basis to state that a city is miserable, then that would be true also because poverty give birth to more negative thing in the community.

    3. Yea what is the methodology in determining this. I live in Bethesda, and I can be pretty miserable at times. The list of the most violent or crime-ridden cities kinda mirror this. Buffalo is pretty violent says my sister, and St. Louis is notorious for violence. Is it linked to poverty?

    4. It is not linked specifically to poverty, and typically based on broader Quality of Life indicators.

      @anonymous: Bethesda is ranked as one of the most-educated small cities in the US and holds good property prices, so I doubt if there is much to complain, relatively speaking. Take a look at this and that.
