Most of us couldn't name the 7 Deadly Sins. Do you know what they are? If you didn't read the Bible then maybe you know them from the Brad Pitt movie.

Some places in America have more sinners than others. There's an obvious number one answer. Las Vegas is earned the name "Sin City" for a reason. It has the most sinners.

Wallet Hub made a list of the most sinful cities. The way they determined these cities was actually quite genius. They compiled data for certain crime numbers. They gathered violent crime, hate crime, bullying, shootings and attack statistics. For jealousy, they gathered theft numbers. Greed was determined by how many casinos the city had nearby. Lust was determined by adult entertainment options in the city. Vanity numbers depended on plastic surgeon locations. Sloth numbers were determined by unemployment and college dropout numbers.
