The most popular crime category in Fayetteville, Arkansas, is not domestic or street crime, but property crime. Former president Bill Clinton lived near Fayetteville. However, things have changed since he moved to a slightly better location in Washington D.C.
According to Moneyinc, the property crime rate decreases the property value, which leads to poverty, unemployment, and a place on our list of miseries.
This place has one of the highest crime rates in the entire United States. Over 11% unemployment rate doesn't really flatter this place and a large portion of the residents live beneath the poverty line. What future do people have here?
So, we know how it works. Poverty leads to crime, crime leads to negative immigration, and negative immigration leads to a spot on this list.
Grants Pass, Oregon
Grants Pass has a population of almost 40,000 people. It's located right on the banks of the Rogue River, making its location not really appealing. The floods of 2018 left people and homes wounded and escalated the city's bad reputation.
The opportunities and activities for young children are fewer at Grants Pass, so the residents have been losing property value over the years. Besides that, the schools are considered average and it has reasonable transportation systems.
Buena, New Jersey
The crime rate in Buena is over 305% lower than the nation's average, so why on earth is this place listed on our miserable list? Well, apparently, the good crime rate is the only thing good about it. The average income is one of the lowest, the unemployment rate is shooting over the roof. The people walking the streets of this place are not strolling or window shopping, they just have nothing better to do.
The value of the houses in Buena is so low, that there is no point in selling since no one is seeking to buy.
The main reason people are not buying houses in Freeport, and causing negative migration, is because of the geographical location of this place. It sits right on the Gulf Coast, which literally invites storms during the hurricane season. This is something that will obviously remain the same, so this place is doomed for good.
The percentage of children that continue their education in a college is under 30%, so if you're looking for a future for the next generation, Freeport is not the place for you.
