The article goes on to state the following:

New York came in a distant second place, followed by Washington, D.C., and Boston.

The study also found the number of rat complaints jumped 55% since 2014.

The study claims “when comparing the number of complaints per 100,000 residents, Chicago topped the list with 1876.09 complaints per 100,000 residents.”
