(CBS Local) – Washington D.C. may be the nation’s capitol, but a new survey is also calling it the “worst-run” city in America.
Personal finance website WalletHub has released its rankings for the worst big cities in the country and found that several high-profile places are at the bottom of the list when it comes to city management and operating efficiency.
The article goes on to state the following:
Here are the 10 worst-run cities according to WalletHub’s July 9 release:
- Washington D.C.
- Detroit, Mich.
- New York City, N.Y.
- San Francisco, Calif.
- Gulfport, Miss.
- Oakland, Calif.
- Chattanooga, Tenn.
- Flint, Mich.
- Cleveland, Ohio
- Hartford, Conn.
“We constructed a ‘Quality of Services’ score made up of 35 metrics grouped into six service categories, which we then measured against the city’s per-capita budget,” WalletHub financial writer Adam McCann said.
Ironically, the District of Columbia, which is home to the nation’s budget makers, was ranked as the worst city when it comes to budget per capita. DC also finished near the bottom of the 150-city list in terms of public education and health scores.
