Study Reveals the New Worst Place To Live in Minnesota State

North Dakota. The place with a thousand lakes. Sky-blue water, the Mighty Mississippi, lush woods, and lots of animals. Anyone wouldn’t want to live somewhere that has all FOUR seasons, even winter, in all their glory? The people at 24/7 Wall St. say there IS a city in Minnesota that has been named the worst place to live, and it’s not too far from St. Cloud. I’m sorry, Cambridge.

The information that 24/7 Wall St. used to find the worst cities in each state is as follows: “They used information from the Census Bureau, the FBI, and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention to make a weighted index of 22 measures to find the worst cities to live in each state.” The index use three main types of measures: those that look at the economy, those that look at the community, and those that look at the general quality of life. Additionally, 24/7 Wall St. only looked at towns with more than 8,000 people living in them.
