Texans rule hard-working cities list

Seven of America's top 10  hardest-working cities are in Texas, according to a new analysis.

To determine the country's hardest-working cities, Kempler Industries, which buys and sells used machinery, examined data from the Census Bureau from nearly 200 cities with 150,000 people or more. Researchers then compared the cities in five key metrics: average commute, average workweek hours, percent of the workforce ages 16 to 64, percent of the senior workforce population and percent of unused vacation days. Each metric was ranked on a 100-point scale, and each city received an overall score based on its weighted average in all metrics.

Researchers said all seven Texas cities that made the top 10 have something in common: They all have at least 20 percent or more of their senior population working.

Here are the top 10 hardest-working cities, based on the analysis:

1. Washington, D.C.

2. Plano, Texas

3. Dallas

4. Grand Prairie, Texas

5. Houston

6. Garland, Texas

7. San Francisco

8. Irving, Texas

9. Arlington, Texas

10. New York City
