Which U.S. Cities Are Most American?
July 4th and a big presidential election are right around the corner, so this is a good time for WalletHub to ask: Which U.S. cities bleed the most red, white and blue?
The personal finance website took an in-depth look at the Metro Areas That Most & Least Resemble the U.S. right now, and while Shreveport-Bossier wasn't in the top or bottom 10, it did get a mention.
WalletHub examined various demographical statistics for 379 of the largest U.S. metro areas. Some of the areas analyzed were age, gender and income, as well as household makeup and housing tenure. Analysts say in terms of housing tenure, Shreveport most closely resembles the U.S. Los Angeles, California, has the least national resemblance, with 48% more renter-occupied than owner-occupied housing units.
The Shreveport-Bossier MSA actually ranked 86th on the list. In the top three were Indianapolis, Indiana; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The bottom three were The Villages, Florida; McAllen, Texas; and Provo, Utah.
