CINCINNATI -- There's a certain kind of person who likes to say Cincinnati is doomed to be Detroit.
According to the wizards at 24/7 Wall St., we have a long way to go until we're that bad.
Detroit was ranked America's worst city to live in. Cincinnati came in at No. 25.
Here's a little about those rankings:
"24/7 Wall St. reviewed data on the 551 U.S. cities with a population of 65,000 or more as measured by the U.S. Census Bureau. Based on a range of variables, including crime rates, employment growth, access to restaurants and attractions, educational attainment and housing affordability, 24/7 Wall St. identified America’s 50 worst cities to live."
The website cited Cincinnati's higher-than-average violent crime rate and cheaply available guns among its chief reasons for placing 25th.
Another problem: Cincinnati's low median income, $35,000 to the national average of about $55,000.
On the plus side, more city residents have a bachelor's degree than the national average, 34.2 percent to 30.6 percent.
