Completing everything on your to-do list feels great—especially when you put in extra time and effort to get the work done.

A strong work ethic is essential for attaining this sense of accomplishment and advancing in your career.

Most people are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and put in a hard day’s work. However, according to WalletHub’s list of “2019’s Hardest-Working Cities in America,” some apply a little more elbow grease.

To compile these rankings, researchers collected data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the U.S. Travel Association, Gallup, the Social Science Research Council and the Corporation for National & Community Service.

Researchers for the study compared “direct work factors” (80 points) and “indirect work factors” (20 points) for 116 of the most-populous cities, with at least one city from each of the 50 states.

Six metrics make up the direct work factors, including the average number of hours residents work per week, the share of employees who don’t use all their vacation time, and the share of households with no working adults.

Indirect work factors focused on four key metrics, including average commute time and the average time spent daily on leisure activities.

Anchorage, Alaska, with a total score of 79.03, earned the top spot.

Here are the top 10:

  1. Anchorage, Alaska
  2. San Francisco
  3. Irving, Texas
  4. Virginia Beach, Virginia
  5. Plano, Texas
  6. Denver
  7. Aurora, Colorado
  8. Austin, Texas
  9. Cheyenne, Wyoming
  10. Sioux Falls, South Dakota
