The site analyzed all 3,100 counties in America and came up with a list of the 10 worst counties in the nation. 

Four of those counties are in Mississippi.

The site says that in order to rank the worst counties to live in the United States, they had to determine what criteria people like or dislike about a place.

Road Snacks used FBI crime data, the government census, Bureau of Labor Statistics and Sperling’s Best Places, and focused on this criteria:

  • Low health care coverage
  • Highest unemployment rates
  • Low adjusted median income (Median income adjusted for the cost of living)
  • Low median home values
  • Low high school graduation rates
  • High poverty rates
