European cities chart how drastically refugee influx has impacted quality of life

Residents of many European cities that have seen great numbers of refugee migration are not happy about how the influx has impacted their communities.

An 83 city study by the European Commission that measured quality of life found that incredible numbers of people thought the migrant tsunami has had a negative impact on their living conditions, the Daily Mail reported.

Less than half of those surveyed felt the migrants have been properly integrated into their communities with the highest levels of frustration coming from Athens, Greater Athens, Malmo, Roma and Istanbul.

Greece and Italy are two of the countries who have taken in the most refugees and subsequently hold the most negative opinions about the massive influx.

Six Italian cities surveyed were among the lowest in terms of how positive they viewed the arrival of refugees has been, according to the Mail.

The crisis has gotten so bad in Greece that the country has been essentially cut off from Europe in an effort to keep the migrants from freely travelling to other European countries. The European Union has sent teams of border guards to prevent the refugees from leaving Greece, according to the Mail.

Istanbul, Turkey was the city that ranked most dissatisfied followed by Palermo, Athens, Greater Athens, Napoli and Miskolc.
