Las Vegas ranks No. 1 for men in financial distress

If you're thinking of coming to Vegas to find a financially secure man, think again.

In a feature titled "The Fiscally Fit Man" in Men's Health magazine, Las Vegas ranks No. 1 for men in financial distress.

The article used eight criteria to determine the list: personal bankruptcy rates, average credit scores, debt, late payments, credit usage, percentage of homes facing foreclosure, percentage of people who spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing and average 401k contributions.

Nevada made another appearance in the top 10, with Reno ranked as the tenth worst city for men’s finances.

Though it looks grim for men in Nevada, men in California might have more to worry about: Riverside, Stockton, Bakersfield, Fresno, and Santa Ana all make the top 10.

Phoenix was third on the list, after Riverside. Orlando and Miami were ranked fifth and seventh, respectively.

So where to find men in the best financial shape? The No. 1 place is Lincoln, Neb., followed by Madison, Wisc., and Sioux Falls, S.D.
