Bloomington has been ranked the most financially unequal city in the U.S., according to Census data.
Business Insider recently ranked the 21 most unequal U.S. cities using the Gini index, a measurement that ranks a city on a zero to one scale using several factors that indicate wealth disparity.
Gini indices showed that Bloomington has the highest inequality with an index of .587. Miami Beach, Fla., and Atlanta, Ga., ranked second and third with indices of .584 and .57.
Such measures of poverty are often said to be skewed in cities that have a high percentage of college students like Bloomington and College Station, Texas, which ranked fourth. Both of these cities were also in the top 10 poorest cities in 2010 based on Census data.
