In order to determine which ones were the unfortunate towns that could be considered for this ranking, it was taken into account the information from the Census data from the 2010-2014 American Community Survey.

After looking and analyzing the specific data in the following aspects: Poverty level, unemployment rates and median household income, it was possible to rank the 15 poorest cities in all of Florida.

Population: 41,732
Poverty Level: 42.8%
