East Cleveland and Cleveland are the most miserable places in Ohio, according to one web site.

After collecting a variety of data and crunching some numbers, roadsnacks.net was able to compile a list of the most miserable cities in the Buckeye State.

They took information from the Census’s American Community Survey 2010 - 2014 report for the criteria, which includes: percentage of residents with a college degree, average commute times, unemployment rates, cost of living, percent of married couples, percent of home owners and poverty rate.

They also limited their search to 343 places in Ohio with over 2,000 people.

This may not be a list that you want your city to make, you can find a list of the happiest cities here.

The Cincinnati-Dayton area could have done worst because only five local cities made it into the top 30.
