Stockton wins it. Using nine factors (i.e., commute times, corruption, professional sports teams, Superfund sites, taxes, unemployment, violent crime and weather) to determine the crappiness of 150 of the country's largest metropolitan areas, Stockton, CA, ranked no. 1 when it comes to woeful living. According to Forbes, "only 15% of Stockton adults have a college degree, which is one of the lowest rates in the U.S." But wait, there's more, "unemployment is expected to hit 15% in 2010, while housing prices should keep falling back to their mid-1990s level when the median home price was $130,000." Not to be outdone, Modesto came in just under medal contention at 5th place. San Joaquin County's Stockton is also known for its agriculture and meth production.
