Many reasons can make a place unlivable or livable, with safety being the most important. But what if it is safe, but there are no jobs? If you started a business, it would not have substantial sales because there is low money circulation.

These are the factors that were factored in when coming up with this list. What is the quality of living, crime rate, median home value, and unemployment rate?

Okmulgee

Okmulgee has a population of 11,846, ranked as one of the most dangerous cities to live in, according to Roadsnacks. The median home value is $70,400, and the unemployment rate is 11.1%, the second-highest in Oklahoma. It is hard for a resident to find jobs here, and when they do, they pay them peanuts.

At night, residents have to lock their doors as the crime rate is very high, and the chance of being a victim of property crime is 1 in 21.

Hugo

Hugo, named after Victor Hugo, has a population of 5,142, ranked at number three as the most dangerous city to live in, according to Roadsnacks. The median home value is $67,400, and the unemployment rate is 11.3%. 42.8% of residents live below the poverty line. This leads to a high crime rate since most people are trying to get by.

Henryetta

Henryetta has a population of 5,633, ranked as one of the most dangerous cities to live in, according to Roadsnacks at number six. The median home value is $64,000, and the unemployment rate is 10.5%.

A former rich in a coal town, the unemployment rate of late is over 10%, and 23% of residents here live below the poverty line.

Pauls Valley

Pauls Valley has a population of 6,139, ranked as one of the most dangerous cities to live in, according to Roadsnacks at number seven. The median home value is $88,000, higher than Henryetta’s. The unemployment rate is 3.5%.

The economy here is booming, thanks to oil and agriculture. The median income is $40,897, which is much higher than most towns in Oklahoma. What makes it not a good place to live in is the crime rate. It is 150% over the United States standard. The education quality is also wanting.

Shawnee

Shawnee has a population of 31,235, ranked as one of the most dangerous cities to live in, according to Roadsnacks at number nine. The median home value is $109,600, the median income is $40,473, and the unemployment rate is 6.7%.

The economy here is not booming; the poverty rate is 20%, high crime rates, and low education quality.

Conclusion

Remember, just because these places are in our five worst areas does not mean that this is how everybody feels like. For some, one of these places may be one of the best places to live in.
