Las Cruces Is 2021’s 9th Best-Run City in America – WalletHub Study

With local governments helping their cities transition back to normalcy as COVID-19 cases decline, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2021’s Best- & Worst-Run Cities in America, as well as accompanying videos and expert commentary.

To determine the effectiveness of local leadership, WalletHub compared 150 of the largest U.S. cities based on their operating efficiency. For each city, WalletHub constructed a “Quality of City Services” score – comprising 38 key performance indicators grouped into six service categories – that was then measured against the city’s total per-capita budget.

How Well Is Las Cruces Managed? (1=Best Run; 75=Avg.):

  • 44th – Financial Stability
  • 72nd – Education
  • 31st – Health
  • 100th – Safety
  • 102nd – Economy
  • 93rd – Infrastructure & Pollution
