The City Freedom Index is the state’s most comprehensive analysis of city policies. The Index ranks Tennessee’s 30 most populous cities based on 25 metrics in four categories. You can click on each city to learn more about its ranking, as well as re-sort the rankings in each of the four categories by clicking on that category title at the top. You can download the full spreadsheets here with each city’s z-scores across all categories
