DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A list by the website 247wallstreet.com lists Robstown and Bellmead due to high crime and poverty rates and low home values.

Robstown, just west of Corpus Christi, is listed 24th. According to the Census, an average of eight-point-one percent of Robstown's labor force has been unemployed over the last five years. Also, overall employment fell by over six percent during that time.

Bellmead, a Waco suburb, was listed 45th due to its violent crime rate being six times the national average in 2017 and its median home value being only $70,000.
