July 2, 2014 (San Diego)--MyLife, a social media website, recently did an analysis of data to determine the most patriotic cities in the U.S. The results are in -- just in time for the 4th of July -- and San Diego is ranked number one. 

MyLife’s analysis included four sets of data:

  • % of Population in the Armed Forces
  • Total Spending on Veterans
  • Popularity of Fireworks in July
  • Community and Social Service Workers

The cities that ranked very well in total spending on veterans (San Diego was fifth in this category) were important in determining which cities made the top 10 rankings. The top cities were fairly spread out, geographically. Its interesting to see that some states had multiple cities earning top rankings for this analysis: Texas had five cities and California had two.

There have, however, been complaints against the company through the years and a settlement over misleading advertisements in Washington state.  Over 1,000 Better Business Bureau complaints have been settled as well.
