NASHUA, N.H (WHDH) - Two New Hampshire communities have been ranked among the 15 best-run cities in America, according to a new study.

WalletHub says it compared the operating efficiency of 150 of the largest cities across the country as community leaders begin to transition from the COVID-19 pandemic back to normalcy.

Analysts constructed a “quality of services” score made up of 38 metrics grouped into six service categories, which they then measured against each city’s per-capita budget, according to the personal-finance website.

Nashua was ranked the fourth best-run city, while Manchester checked in at 15th on the list.

Other New England cities to appear on the list include:

  • 38. Lewiston, Maine
  • 42. Worcester, Massachusetts
  • 59. Rutland, Vermont
  • 70. Boston, Massachusetts
  • 85. Springfield, Massachusetts
  • 89. Providence, Rhode Island
  • 96. Burlington, Vermont
  • 99. Bridgeport, Connecticut
  • 135. New Haven, Connecticut
  • 140. Hartford, Connecticut

Nampa, Idaho, checked in as the best-run city in America.
