The fact that the population of Lansing hasn't grown significantly over the years works against it. Other criteria included under this heading are income growth, income inequality, the unemployment rate and the share of the population living in poverty.

Lansing's Quality of Education and Health

The WalletHub study considered a wide variety of factors when determining each capital city's quality of education and health.

Things such as the quality of each city's K-12 school system were considered, along with graduation rates (both high school and college), the quality of its public hospital system, and the share of its population with health insurance, among other criteria.
