Report: New Haven among '50 Worst Cities To Live In'

New Haven and one other Connecticut metro area have landed on a list of the "50 Worst Cities to Live In," released by the financial news and commentary website 24/7 Wall Street.

The article identifies the 50 U.S. metro areas with largest net population decline as a result of migration between 2010 and 2017.

The New Haven-Milford metro area charted at No. 39, posting a population loss of 11,253.

Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford, which lost 13,682 residents during the same period, came in at No. 11.

The population figures came from the U.S. Bureau of the Census' Population Estimates Program.

24/7 Wall Street created an index measuring eight "quality of life" areas — crime, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure and leisure — to identify the 50 "worst cities" to live in.
