The Dirtiest City in New Jersey has been Revealed

Mocobizscene- Lawnstarter comprehensively analysed more than 150 major cities in the United States. The study covered four key categories: pollution, living conditions, infrastructure, and consumer satisfaction. It is important to note that these metrics can be subjective to some extent, so it is advisable to approach the results with a certain level of caution.

Newark, New Jersey has been identified as the dirtiest city in the state, according to Lawnstarter. In fact, it holds the second spot for being the dirtiest city in the entire country, right after Houston.

Although Newark’s pollution rank is not too bad at 14th, the living conditions in the city are among the fifth worst, and consumer satisfaction is ranked as the third worst.

Researchers collected various metrics to assess the city’s overall environmental quality. These metrics included the median air quality index, water quality violations, greenhouse gas emissions per capita, annual excess fuel consumption, and the percentage of smokers. The researchers gave more importance to certain metrics in the overall score. For instance, the air quality index held significant weight, while the excess fuel consumption values were considered less influential.

Researchers analyzed various factors to assess the quality of living conditions in each city. These factors included population density, overcrowding rates, homelessness, and the availability of essential home amenities like kitchen facilities, plumbing, and sewage disposal systems. They also took into account sanitary issues such as mold, rodent infestations, and cockroach problems. Among these factors, pest infestations were given the highest importance.

Apparently, tidiness is not one of the things that New Jersey’s largest city has to be proud of.
