When you are thinking about places to possibly move, you might wanna avoid these towns in Wisconsin.  RS

Here's the research, and the criteria used:

 

  • Population Density
  • Highest Unemployment Rates
  • Income for residents
  • High Housing Vacancy Rate
  • Education levels
  • Crime rates

OK, so now that we know how this list was put together...Let's discuss. Is Illinois better than Wisconsin. Do Wisconsin people or Illinois people talk funny? Are Wisconsin drivers THAT bad? So many ideas, so many thoughts, what's real?? I'll tell you what's real, these 20 towns suck! (Not my personal opinion, just the list man)

So let's take a look at the 20 Worst Freakin' Places to Live in Wisconsin...

Merrill
Rhinelander
Beloit
Ashland
Marinette
Wisconsin Rapids
Waupaca
Rice Lake
Antigo
Racine
Stevens Point
Green Bay
Milwaukee
Baraboo
Wausau
Chippewa Falls
Prairie Du Chien
Berlin
New London
Portage

I've always enjoyed my time in Milwaukee, and I think I've been to Racine...maybe? But again that's using the formula provided for us:

  • Population Density
  • Highest Unemployment Rates
  • Income for residents
  • High Housing Vacancy Rate
  • Education levels
  • Crime rates

So no personal opinions are allowed. The website analyzed 165 of the state’s most populous cities, and came up with the list. See, it's science. Or something...and we are ALWAYS supposed to believe in science, or something.

For a lot of Illinoisians, we try to "escape to Wisconsin", especially on the weekends. For those in Packer country, some towns are better than others. Now you know where NOT to go.
