Newsweek has spotlighted what it refers to as “America’s 20 Can-Do Capitals,” and five Texas cities made the cut.
The magazine looked at the 200 largest U.S. cities to see how they are progressing in the areas of business growth, sustainability, livability, and transportation and infrastructure. Each city was able to receive up to 25 points in each of these four categories, for a total of 100.
Texas fared very well.
Topping the list was El Paso with a score of 71.4. San Antonio ranked fourth with 61.6, Austin tenth with 59.4, Dallas thirteenth with 58.5, and Fort Worth fourteenth with 58.1.
Newsweek provides a breakdown of the scores and a detailed explanation of how the cities were judged in each category.
