If you’re looking to live in Pennsylvania, Mckeesport might not be the best choice as it places 1st in our ranking of the worst places to live in the Keystone State for 2015.
The average family earns $25,697 a year out here, and 28.8% of the population is below the poverty line. Nearly 14.9% of the population is out of work.
And when you consider the crime, it’s just crazy to think of how dangerous it is to live way out here. When you’re in Mckeesport, every year, you have a 1 in 33.2 chance of being robbed. Can you imagine? Perhaps it’s an economic factor, or the fact that the people out there are so isolated, but the fact remains, it’s the 15th most dangerous place in the state, per capita.
