That means nine cities ranked higher than the Mile High City. Count them down below, along with graphics and stats from the report that will give those of us hacking and sneezing in D-Town a better sense of where conditions might help us to breathe a little easier.

First, here's a key to help you interpret the graphics below:

Moved to the mountains from the east coast a couple years. I've lived in MD, VA, FL, NC and CT, and my allergies back east (especially FL) were many times worse than what I've experienced here.

Moved here from Ohio a little over a year ago, and my allergies haven't been this bad in ages. Thinking its a mixture of pollen I'm not used to perhaps? I use a few things to keep it all somewhat in check, but yeah, it's bad in Denver.
