If you’re looking for trouble, you can probably find it wherever you are, and a new report reveals where the naughtiest places in the country are. WalletHub has done the dirty work by comparing 182 cities to determine which cities are the most sinful. Topping the list once again is Las Vegas, proving it lives up to its “Sin City” nickname.
To come up with their rankings, WalletHub looked at 37 indicators of evil deeds in seven key areas: 1) anger and hatred, 2) jealousy, 3) excesses and vices, 4) greed, 5) lust, 6) vanity and 7) laziness. They compared data ranging from violent crimes per capita to excessive drinking to the number of adult entertainment establishments in each city.
While Las Vegas has held onto the top spot for another year, the city in second place this year is St. Louis, up from third last year. Los Angeles, which was number two in 2020 has fallen to fourth on the list for 2021.
