A recent report from Forbes India revealed the United States has the largest economy in the world based on GDP data. Such efforts come from Americans putting in the work across job sectors from hospitality and industrial fields to agriculture and technology. Workers in several key cities could be fueling the country's position in economic affairs on the world stage, as well.

If you're curious about which U.S. cities have a strong work ethic, WalletHub released a list of the "hardest-working" cities in the country. Analysts with the website explained how they compiled the rankings:

"In order to determine which cities outwork the rest of America, WalletHub compared the 116 largest cities across 11 key metrics. Our data set ranges from the employment rate to average weekly work hours to the share of workers with multiple jobs."

A popular city in Washington broke into the Top 40. Seattle ranked at No. 32 overall thanks to strong points in the "Indirect Work Factors" category. This includes metrics like average commute time, number of workers with multiple jobs, average leisure time spent per day, and more. 

Washington D.C. was declared America's hardest-working city, while Burlington, Vermont landed at the very bottom of the list.
