There are, of course, lots of studies ranking one thing against another. Some are more viable than others. But they’re usually somewhat interesting.

WalletHub, a personal finance website, has taken a whole bunch of data points including age, gender, income, and household make-up to rank cities on how “typically American” they are, based on how close they are to the national average.

Number one?

Nashville, Tennessee.

Number 340 out of 366 on the list? Washington, DC.
