Which North Carolina city is among the worst in the country at keeping New Year's resolutions?

The new year is finally here, and that means it’s time for New Year’s resolutions. But how likely are North Carolina residents to keep those New Year’s resolutions?

For some, it seems pretty darn likely they will. But for at least one North Carolina city, it’s probably not gonna happen. According to WalletHub.com’s rankings of 180 U.S. cities, Fayetteville residents are the least likely in the state to keep New Year’s resolutions.

Fayetteville came in at No. 173 out of the 180 markets measured, ranking poorly in such categories as Health Resolutions, Financial Resolutions and Relationship Resolutions. What about the rest of the North Carolina cities measured? Here’s where they all ranked:

  • Raleigh – 14
  • Charlotte – 24
  • Durham – 40
  • Greensboro – 104
  • Winston-Salem – 152
  • Fayetteville – 173

Fayetteville ranked just ahead of Montgomery, Alabama and San Bernardino, California on the list, with Newark, New Jersey taking the final spot in the rankings.

Raleigh and Charlotte both found themselves in the top 25, thanks to an abundance of options in health and bad habit resolutions. But which cities in the country were the absolute top of the list? Take a look at the images below this graphic:
