San Francisco is super-expensive, but the people who live there can handle it.
WalletHub named San Francisco the most financially fit city, based on criteria such as credit standing, responsible spending, savings, risk exposure, and earning power. Other fiscally successful cities include Seattle, San Jose, Madison, Wis., Overland Park, Kan., Sioux Falls, S.D., and both Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn.
Cities on the other end, ones that fare the worst, include Newark, Miami, Detroit, and New Orleans. WalletHub examined the 150 largest U.S. cities, ranked them in 27 factors, and created a composite score.
