    Las Vegas isn’t the only sinful place in America. In other cities, bad things happen and stay there, too. From beer-loving Milwaukee to hedonistic New Orleans, the U.S. is filled with people behaving badly. No place is innocent. We all have demons. But luckily for the saints among us, all American vices are not created — or distributed — equally.

     

    So in order to identify the darkest corners of America, WalletHub’s data crunchers compared the 150 most populated U.S. cities across 27 key indicators of evil deeds. Our data set ranges from “violent crimes per capita” to “excessive drinking” to “potential cheaters.” Scroll down to see the baddest of the bad cities, expert recommendations for overcoming humanity’s devilish nature and a full description of how we ranked the cities.


    Top ten:

    1.       Las Vegas, NV

    2.       St. Louis, MO

    3.       Cincinnati, OH

    4.       Orlando, FL

    5.       Springfield, MO

    6.       Miami, FL

    7.       Richmond, VA

    8.       Baton Rouge, LA

    9.       Pittsburgh, PA

    10.   New Orleans, LA

     

    Methodology

    In order to determine the most sinful cities in America, WalletHub’s number crunchers compared the 150 most populated cities across seven key dimensions: 1) Anger & Hatred, 2) Jealousy, 3) Excesses & Vices, 4) Avarice, 5) Lust, 6) Vanity and 7) Laziness.


    We examined these dimensions using 27 relevant metrics.

    Questions: What do you think about their 27 metrics, are they valid to explain the key dimensions? What have you observe about these cities or your community as it relate to these findings and conclusions? Your thoughts?
