And while the city consistently ranks as one of the best places to live in the country thanks in part to a strong economy and tons of entertainment, it’s not all rainbows and sunshine in San Bernardino. Some neighborhoods aren’t as great as others.

So the question arises, which San Bernardino neighborhoods are the worst, and which are the best?

Today, we’ll use science and data to determine which San Bernardino hoods need a little tender loving care – the sore thumbs of the San Bernardino area if you will. Realistically, you can’t expect all the neighborhoods to be amazing, although Belevedere ranks way above the rest.

How we determined the worst San Bernardino hoods

To figure out how bad a place is to live in, we only needed to know what kinds of things people like and then decide what places have the least amount of those things. We threw the following criteria into this analysis in order to get the best, most complete results possible. We used this set of criteria for each neighborhood in San Bernardino:

  • High unemployment (Less jobs)
  • Low median income (Less pay)
  • Low population density (No things to do)
  • Low home values (No one’s willing to pay to live here)
  • High crime (Estimated)

Then, we ranked each neighborhood in San Bernardino for each of these criteria from worst to best.

Next, we averaged the individual rankings for each criteria into a “Worst Score”.

The neighborhood with the lowest “Worst Score” ranks as the worst neighborhood of San Bernardino.
