Sacramento Finishes in Bottom Half of State Capital Cities Livability Survey

A recent study of state capital cities ranked Sacramento in the bottom half of livability. 

The study conducted by personal financial website WalletHub, found Sacramento ranked 27th overall among 50 rated cities. The top honors went to Austin, Texas while Trenton, New Jersey occupied the bottom spot.

In their rankings, WalletHub compared all 50 capital cities across 51 key indicators including affordability, economic strength, quality of education, health, and overall living standards. Also included was the number of tourist attractions.

On the negative side, Sacramento was ranked as the 43rd in terms of affordability. Although Sacramento has become the preferred destination of Bay Area transplants, it is not affordable as compared to other capital cities.

The five best in affordability included Cheyenne, Wyoming; Oklahoma City; Bismarck, North Dakota; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Springfield, Illinois. 

On the flip side, Sacramento was ranked 8th in the quality of life index. The top five in this category were Honolulu, Boston, Denver, Austin, and Madison Wisconsin.
