A new WalletHub study compared the operating efficiency of 150 of the largest U.S. cities to reveal which among them are managed best.

In order to determine the ranking, WalletHub used six categories to find out America's best-run cities.

  • Financial stability
  • Education
  • Health
  • Safety
  • Economy
  • Infrastructure and Pollution

Missoula, Montana broke into the 'Top 10' and is ranked #7 on the list of 'best-run' cities in America. However, Missoula ranked 114 out of 150 for financial stability.

Billings, Montana also made it into the Top 25. Billings is ranked #15 on the list. Billings ranked #1 on the list for cities with the least amount of air pollution. Unfortunately, Billings was lower on the list for Health (#110) and Safety (#124). Bozeman was not included on the list.

Idaho ranked high on the list with two cities topping the list at #1 (Nampa, ID) and #2 (Boise,ID).
