Santa Clarita is the 12th hardest-working city in the United States, according to a new Census-based survey by Kempler Industries, a Chicago-based industrial machinery seller.
To rank the hardest-working cities in America, Kempler analyzed the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau for nearly 200 cities with a population of 150,000 or more, as well as data from the U.S. Travel Association.
The survey’s rankings were based on the following metrics:
* Average commute time (Santa Clarita averaged 34.9 minutes)
* Average workweek hours (Santa Clarita averaged 38.4 hours)
* Percentage of workforce population aged 16-64 (63.9%)
* Percentage of senior workforce aged 65 and up (20.2%)
* The percentage of unused vacation days (30.5%)
To determine an overall score, each city’s weighted average was calculated across all metrics.
* Percent of workforce population age 16-64: 20 points
* Average commute (in minutes): 20 points
* Average hours worked per week: 20 points
* Percent of workforce population age: 20 points
* Percent of unused vacation states (state-level data): 20 points
From Chicago to Charlotte, the results revealed a mixture of the hardest-working cities, both large and small.
