SURVEY: DC, Detroit, NYC Top ‘Worst-Run’ Cities

(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.

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.
