We love our city, does it deserve to be this high on the list?
Out of 50 cities, Detroit ranked #3 on the list of the 50 most miserable cities in the country.
From 2010 to 2018, Detroit lost 6% of the population. While most people in the city are working, 38% live in poverty. The median household income is $27,838.
Most of the residents left Detroit between 1950 and 1980 when the manufacturing industry collapsed. With over 40,000 abandoned homes, it’s considered to be a struggling city and one of the most dangerous cities in the United States.
