Forbes looked at two hundred of the largest metropolitan areas in the country to come up with this list.  Each had to have a population of at least 259,000 and factors such as violent crime, property tax rates, foreclosure, the average unemployment rate, average commute time and weather all factored in to determine a city’s misery.

The ten most miserable cities in America:

1.  Detroit, Michigan

2.  Flint, Michigan

3.  Rockford, Illinois

4.  Chicago, Illinois

5.  Modesto, California

6.  Vallejo, California

7.  Warren, Michigan

8.  Stockton, California
