The data came from the online career site CareerBliss.com using more than 200,000 independent employee reviews from 2013.

Workers from across the country were asked to evaluate 10 factors that can affect happiness at work, such as your relationship with your boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture and reputation, daily tasks and control over the work done on a daily basis.

They answered each factor using a five-point scale, and indicated how important each factor was to their overall happiness at work.

Those numbers were combined to get the overall rating of employee happiness for each person, which in turn was sorted by location to find the ten unhappiest cities for workers.

Another Queen City - Cincinnati, OH - was named the number one unhappiest place to work.
