Stacker's list of the top 50 best-run U.S. cities uses data from WalletHub's Best- and Worst-Run Cities in America, published on July 1, 2019. Factors used to determine the overall quality of city services rank and score comprise weighted average scores in six key categories, including financial stability, education, health, safety, economy, and infrastructure and pollution. Scores for each of the six categories were evaluated based on 37 relevant metrics like average life expectancy, violent crime rate, quality of roads, and Moody's city credit rating, and each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with 100 points representing the highest quality of service for each metric. The final score was also out of 100 points.
