This is the Worst Montana City to Live In

The answer might come as a surprise to you.

To be honest, I was a bit surprised to see that MSN named Missoula the worst Montana city to live in. I don’t want to name any towns that I feel should be on this list for the sake of making people angry, but Missoula definitely isn’t one of the worst.

The article by MSN went on to explain why Missoula was chosen as the worst city to live in. Here’s what they had to say:

“Relatively low incomes in Missoula make the city unaffordable for many residents. The median household income in Missoula is $37,444, well below the statewide median income of $49,509. At the same time, the typical area home is worth $239,500 — or $30,000 more than the typical home in Montana. Indeed, the typical American home is worth about 3.5 times the typical household income, while Missoula’s comparable affordability ratio is 6.4.”

Crime was also listed as a factor.

“Missoula is more expensive and also more dangerous than the state as a whole. There were 527 violent crimes in the city for every 100,000 residents in 2015 — well above Montana’s violent crime rate of 350 incidents per 100,000 residents that same year.”

I’m pretty sure MSN needs to double check their research. Missoula isn’t the best place to live, but it’s certainly not the worst.
