If you got stuck in the "It's a Small World" ride you'd be angry too...those damned singing dolls can make one homicidal.

There are benefits to 'fudging' or 'ignoring' crime rates and statistics!

Does your city's rank rankle you? We kind of figured it would.

(From most to least angry cities)

1. Orlando, FL

2. St. Petersburg, FL

70. Jersey City, NJ





----------------------------------------------------------


It is probably not that the citizenry of Jersey City is
cool, calm and collected; more likely just apathetic.
A few of us may needle and rankle and rancor, but
I bet the majority could basically care less.

(just opining out loud.)

What tosh! Florida ranked 1 & 2 worst. Might be because they have a higher percentage of older residents and older people statiscally have higher blood pressure.

People get paid to produce this drivel?

This is a tough one to believe because of the use of high blood pressure stats. Isn't JC 2/3 Black or Hispanic, and aren't those two demographic groups more prone to hypertension? Maybe our good ranking reflects the poor medical care people are getting - their numbers aren't in the computer.

How Angry Is Your City?
A side-by-side ranking of where residents are the most steamed

Our search for evidence of urban anger began with the percentage of men with high blood pressure, from the CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (as calculated by Sperling's BestPlaces). We then factored in FBI rates of aggravated assaults and Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers on workplace deaths from assaults and other violence. And because rage and the road often go hand in hand, we also included traffic-congestion data from the Texas Transportation Institute, as well as speeding citations per state from the Governors Highway Safety Association.

Does your city's rank rankle you? We kind of figured it would.

(From most to least angry cities)

1. Orlando, FL

2. St. Petersburg, FL

70. Jersey City, NJ


Rising fast up the charts with a bullet!
