BALTIMORE, MD—Along with being named one of the worst cities in the U.S. in which to retire, Baltimore also now holds the dubious honor of being the most miserable city in Maryland.

The new report comes from travel.alot.com, and says that the state of Maryland has the highest long-term unemployment rate in the country, and the city of Baltimore sits at 7%, which is almost double the national unemployment rate.

In addition, the median household income in Baltimore is approximately $46,641 and at least 22.4% of the city’s residents live below the poverty line.

The crime rate in Baltimore can also be a scary figure. Although as a whole, crime is only 145% higher than the national average, the violent crime rate is 382% higher than the national violent crime rate. This gives residents a 1-in-16 chance of becoming a victim of crime.
