MIAMI, Feb. 3 (UPI) — Forbes magazine has named Miami the most miserable city in the United States by analyzing factors including crime and unemployment.
The magazine said it considered factors including violent crime, unemployment rates, foreclosures, taxes, home prices, political corruption, commute times, weather and performance of local sports teams to determine Miami is the most miserable city in the United States.
