When it comes to keeping New Year’s resolutions, Bismarck area residents are very good at keeping the financial ones, not so good at keeping the health one, and good at maintaining school, work and bad habit resolutions.

That’s according to a data survey by personal financial website WalletHub.

Analyzing data in 56 categories ranging from gyms per capita to income growth, researchers then ranked 182 American cities from best to least capable of keeping various resolutions.

Bismarck does pretty good, coming in at 59th on the list.

We’re in the top 15 cities when it comes to honoring financial resolutions, but we’re in the bottom 15 when it comes to keeping health related resolutions.

In one category, “Median Credit Score,” Bismarck has the second-highest score among the 182 cities surveyed.

Bismarck and Fargo also tie for the top spot in the category, “Unemployment Rate,” with the lowest among the cities examined.

Fargo fares a little better than Bismarck, coming in at #31. The city does very good in keeping resolutions to eliminate bad habits (in the top 10, in fact).
