After getting the data for every place in Maine, we ultimately decided to limit our analysis to the biggest places with over 5,000 people.
That left us with 100 cities.
We then ranked each place across a number of criteria from one to 100, with 1 being the worst in any given category.
Finally, we took the average rank across all criteria, with the place posting the lowest overall score gaining the title “Worst City In Maine To Find A Job”.
The criteria we looked at were:
Population: 3,189 Recent Job Growth: -1.39%
Future Job Growth: 27.40%
Population: 4,530 Recent Job Growth: -7.60%
Future Job Growth: 9.50%

After crunching all the numbers, Lincoln took the “top” spot as the worst city in Maine for a job.
So while the economy continues to improve and jobs become available across the state of Maine, these cities lag behind.
Hopefully they can catch up before they miss their next bonus.
