Demographics of the largest 25 U.S. cities are significantly correlated with either their online sustainability reporting or their sustainability performance. The Leaders—cities with good sustainability reporting and good sustainability performance—such as Seattle, San Diego, Boston, San Jose, Austin, and Phoenix, have the highest median household income and the lowest family poverty rate. The Visionaries—those with superior reporting but poorer performance—such as San Antonio, Columbus, Chicago, Houston, New York, and Los Angeles, have a higher population, higher cost of living index, superior metro transit ridership rank, and the highest earning from the arts, entertainment, and recreation sector. The Pragmatists—having inferior reporting, however, good performance—such as Charlotte, Jacksonville, Milwaukee, San Francisco, and Denver, have the worst metro transit ridership rank, the lowest in population, and the lowest in individual poverty rate. Lastly, the Laggards—cities with both poor reporting and poor performance—such as Memphis, Detroit, Dallas, Indianapolis, El Paso, Philadelphia, Fort Worth, and Baltimore, have the highest individual poverty rate, highest family poverty rate, and highest total property crime.
