WalletHub's analysts compared the operating efficiency of the largest U.S. cities to find out which are managed best.

Keeping a city up and running is no small feat. U.S. cities are epicenters of multiculturalism, business and activity, which makes them difficult to manage in more ways than one. So, when it comes to transportation and other public services, elected officials must work together to provide the greatest good for the greatest number. Unfortunately, the undertaking is easier said than done. 

The effectiveness of a city, according to WalletHub, is quantifiable. Analysts at the personal finance website compared the quality of city services against per-capita budget. Using 33 key performance indicators to measure the quality of those services, WalletHub came up with a detailed breakdown of what cities offer the most band for residents’ buck.
