Arizona may be known for its gorgeous natural scenery, but according to one study, the Grand Canyon State may be home to one of the worst U.S. cities to live in.
To determine America’s 50 worst cities, 24/7 Wall St. looked at data on 551 U.S. cities with a population over 65,000 analyzing the cities with variables such as crime rates, employment growth, education, and housing affordability.
According to the results, Tucson is "one of the only cities in the Southwest to rank among the worst places to live." Although, it did place near the middle of the list at No. 28.
"Tucson’s economy has grown slower than most cities’ in recent years, and unemployment in the area remains slightly above the national rate," the website writes. "Tucson also struggles with one of the highest property crime rates in the country."
Detroit, according to the results, was the worst on the list.
