Hutchins has a population of 5,726, a rank last year of three (which means an upward move of two), a median home value of $78,200, which is the 48th worst, and an unemployment rate 9.6%, which is the 24th worst.
Looking at the numbers, Hutchins is undoubtedly the worst place you could choose to live in the state of Texas. Let’s have a quick look at why this is.
Persons who live in Hutchins, which is in Dallas County, are victims of the 29th highest number of crimes in the state. You then add a much lower per-resident income level to this plight and the fact that the average home value is $78,200. Factoring in all of this makes it a very crummy place to live compared to other cities.
Hampstead has a population of 7,397, a rank last year of 30 (which means an upward move of 28), a median home value of $104,300, which is the 122nd worst, and an unemployment rate of 9.4%, which is the 29th worst.
Hampstead is small and densely populated. At 9.4%, the unemployment rate is incredibly high, and the income level is the 20th lowest in the entire state of Texas. The average home value is $104,300.
If you want a professional career in Texas, consider living somewhere.
Cleveland has a population of 7,998, a rank last year of one (which means a downward move of two), a median home value of $87,600, which is the 76th worst, and an unemployment rate of 8.3%, which is the 46th worst.
Cleveland is not much different from the cities above. Statistically, the number of crimes committed is the 32nd highest in the state. Additionally, the amount of residents earn is far below the requirement for a normal quality of life. About 17.1% of Cleveland’s population lives below the poverty line. Additionally, at 8.3%, the unemployment rate is higher than almost all other Texan cities.
Port Arthur has a population of 55,249, a rank last year of two (which means a downward move of two), a median home value of $65,700, which is the 17th worst, and an unemployment rate of 8.4%, which is the 45th worst.
There’s a population density of 702 people per square mile in Port Arthur. For a quick comparison, the population density in Dallas is 3,500 people per square mile. Therefore, saying that there is much open space in Port Arthur is an understatement. It’s hard to get the community feels that many people crave when they are spaced apart.
Additionally, the average property value in Port Arthur is only $65,700, which is the 17th lowest in the state. Therefore, there are going to be even more open spaces. Don’t forget that the unemployment rate is 8.4%.
On a lighter note, Port Arthur has the second-highest figure in educational spending. The figure stands at an astounding $16,494.
Livingston has a population of 5,046, a rank last year of 18 (which means an upward move of 13), a median home value of $96,700, the 108th worst, and an unemployment rate of 6.2%, which is the 112th worst.
Compared to other states in the USA, the numbers in Texas are better. However, when Texan cities are compared to each other, there are some huge differences.
Livingston’s average home value is $96,700, which ranks as being the 108th lowest in Texas. You may look at it as cheap living, but the house prices are based on demand. Unfortunately, not many people look to live here. Additionally, about 16.1% of the population falls below the poverty line.
The 17th highest crime rate is in this city. Living in Livingston means a one in 19.5 chance of being a robbery victim. You can imagine how many cars and homes are broken into.
Robstown has a population of 11,494, a rank last year of four (which means a downward move of two), a median home value of $52,900, the fifth-worst, and an unemployment rate of 20%, which is the worst.
Robstown needs a lot of love. The unemployment rate stands at a staggering 20%, and the median income is just above the poverty line. The crime is also the ninth highest in Texas. Living in Robstown means a one in 14.6 chance of being a robbery victim annually. There are much better places to call home.
Aransas Pass has a population of 8,113, a rank last year of six (which means a downward move of one), a median home value of $107,000, the 126th worst, and an unemployment rate of 7.4% which is the 72nd worst.
This city also needs some love after being ranked as the seventh-worst place in Texas to live in 2020. It has the 13th highest crime rate in the state. According to FBI numbers, there’s a one in 18.3 chance of being a property crime victim. The income level is almost the worst, and residents have the 118th longest commute time in the state.
Center has a population of 5,319, a rank last year of 23 (which means an upward movement of 15), a median home value of $67,200, which is the 18th worst, and an unemployment rate of 13.6%, which is the seventh-worst.
It’s one of the worst places you could live in, even beyond Texas. It has a 13.6% unemployment rate in a city of 5,319 people. That is an indication that things are depressing.
Palmview has a population of 5,740, a rank last year of five (which means a downward movement of four), a median home value of $83,200, which is the 60th worst, and an unemployment rate of 8.4%, which is the 44th worst.
The unemployment rate stands at a shocking 8.4%, but employed people earn a decent salary of $35,921 a year. While $83,200 is not the worst price for homes, it’s still significantly lower than the state average. Additionally, crime is terrible.
Wharton has a population of 8,718, a rank last year of 19 (which means an upward move of nine), a median home value of $90,200, which is the 86th worst, and an unemployment rate of 9.1% which is the 35th worst.
Wharton is no different from the other cities on the list. It has terrible scores in income, crime, and unemployment. Only acceptable education statistics prevent it from being the worst. It’s numbers give it the 26th lowest income level and the 92nd worst crime index in Texas.
