(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.
