Best & Worst Cities for Wallet Wellness

There is a definite correlation between physical, emotional and financial wellbeing – or, what could be collectively referred as our “Wallet Wellness.”

Just consider the fact that money, work and the economy – in that order – are our leading causes of stress. Stress, in turn, forces a million people to miss work every day at an average daily cost of $600 to employers and an average annual cost of $15 billion to the economy. Then there’s the $62 billion in productivity that we lose annually to sleep deprivation – a common side effect of stress –and the $200-300 billion price tag associated with stress-related illness.

So, in celebration of National Financial Literacy Month and to promote the adoption of responsible habits – both directly and indirectly related to personal finance – WalletHub decided to identify and honor the U.S. cities that are altogether most conducive to Wallet Wellness.

We compared the 150 largest cities in the United States in terms of 8 key metrics designed to gauge the responsibility with which consumers manage both their finances and their lifestyles as well as the extent to which local dynamics promote wealth creation and upward mobility. More information about our Methodology as well as a comprehensive city-by-city rankings breakdown can be found below.
