A new analysis by 24/7 Wall St. identified some of the nation’s poorest cities through an in-depth comparison of household incomes in 2,600 different cities, towns and villages.

They compiled a list of the poorest regions of every U.S. state. Here are some of the most outstanding statistics revealed by the report.

Selma, Alabama: This is the poorest region in the state, with a median household income of $24,223 and the poverty rate was more than 38 percent.

Centreville, Illinois: This was identified as surprising because the median household income for the entire state is above the average, but for this particular region was $17,441 and the poverty rate was more than 48 percent.

East Cleveland, Ohio: A quarter of the households in this region made less than $10,000 a year, according to US Today and the report. The median household income was just above $21,000.

Clearlake, California: This is the poorest town in the state, with a median household income of $27,000. Despite having expensive properties elsewhere in the state, this town’s homes are almost all worth less than $100,000.
