The annual “Quitter’s Day” is right around the corner — Sunday, January 19 — and the personal-finance website WalletHub has released its report on 2020’s Best & Worst Cities for Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions.
WalletHub says only around eight percent of Americans will keep their New Year’s resolutions and their data experts compared more than 180 U.S. cities to see which city residents had the best shot of keeping their resolutions.
For its part, Worcester is ranked #134 out of the 182 cities studied.
WalletHub used 57 metrics to study each city, including data sets like adult obesity to income growth to employment outlook.
Among the five major rankings WalletHub used to measure each city, Worcester ranked best (#87 overall) in fulfilling health resolutions. However, the city didn’t rank higher than #110 in each of the other rankings — financial, education, relationships and bad-habits.
