Tucson is one of the neediest cities in the U.S., according to a recent survey.

While several Arizona communities — Gilbert, Scottsdale and Chandler — were among the 15 least needy in WalletHub’s survey of the 150 largest cities in the country, Tucson came in at No. 131.

For the three metro-Phoenix cities that finished at the top of the list, the financial advice website attributed their rosy standing largely to a relatively low poverty rate and a small percentage of households on public assistance.

Tucson, on the other hand, was saddled with a 26.4 percent poverty rate, the highest among the Arizona cities studied.
