The 10 Worst Places To Live In California


In order to rank the worst places to live in California, we had to determine what criteria people like or dislike about a place. It isn’t a stretch to assume that people like low crime, solid education, great weather, things to do and a stable economy.

So this is the criteria we used:

  • Population Density (The lower the worse – meaning there isn’t a lot to do)
  • Highest Unemployment Rates
  • Adjusted Median Income (Median income adjusted for the cost of living)


  • High Housing Vacancy Rate
  • Education (Low expenditures per student and high Student Teacher Ratio)
  • Long Commute Times
  • High Crime
  • The Worst Weather
