After getting the data for every place in Minnesota, 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 Minnesota To Find A Job”.
The criteria we looked at were:

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