Thursday, October 01, 2015

 

Worcester is not a great city for people with disabilities to live in. Out of 150 major cities in the United States, Worcester ranked #146 of the worst cities for people with disabilities.

According to a study by Wallethub, Worcester is the third worst economic environment in the United States for disabled people and ranks well into the bottom half of the cities in healthcare costs.

Worcester also has the fourth highest percentage of disabled people living under the poverty level, and the fifth highest cost of doctor visits in the United States.

Overall, Worcester finished behind only Moreno Valley and San Bernardino, California, Jersey City, New Jersey and Providence, Rhode Island.

One bright note for Worcester is it finished in the top half (#64) in Wallethub’s “Quality of Life” ranking.

The city of Boston didn’t fare much better than Worcester as it came in at #135.
