Not good news for Utica and Rome, Both cities were just voted number 11 on a list of The 11 Most Miserable Cities In America. We have the full details, and the other cities on the list here:

According to Business Insider, Gallup is out with its latest batch of "well-being" data. How do they gather this data to explain to people who has the most miserable city in America?

The index ranks well-being by averaging scores in six categories: Life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors, and access to basic necessities.

According to the survey, Utica and Rome came in at No.11. Our overall score was a 63.4 out of 100.

The metro area ranked 176th overall, four spots higher than its place at No.180 in 2011. It scored highest in healthy behavior (at No.65), which measures lifestyle habits like smoking, exercise frequency, diet, and consumption of fruits and vegetables.

Apparently results are based on phone interviews with a random sample of 353,563 adults in the U.S. Metro areas.

So the question remains...
