The Most Miserable City In Alabama Is.....?

There are so many factors that would make someone consider a place miserable. Crime rate, weather, and unemployment all factor into the equation. Could you guess which city in Alabama made the list?

I've been living in Alabama for a little over a year now. I've seen some beautiful weather, scenic views and met some very nice people. I've often seen people talk about the best city in the state, but who wins the title of "Worst City" in Alabama?

According to, Alabama's most miserable city is located in Jefferson County. If you guessed Birmingham, you're right!The reasons Birmingham was listed as Alabama's most miserable city may shock you. Did you know Birmingham is the one of the cities in the United States with the highest rate of seperation and divorce? Wow!

I've heard a lot about Birmingham's crime rate since moving to Alabama so that didn't shock me. While reading this info, I wondered what would be the preferred place to live in Alabama since, according to this list, Birmingham isn't the best choice.

Huntsville was the better choice. According to, Huntsville's high school graduation rate is 8% higher than the national average, the income per capita is 9% higher than the national average, and the home value in Huntsville is 31% higher than the rest of the state.
