According to a recent study – And Arbor, Michigan is the most educated city in the USA.
The results might be quite surprising to some, but they are based on the data from U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, GreatSchools.org and U.S. News & World Report which are indeed credible sources.
The rankings in 150 largest U.S metropolitan areas were based on the following criteria:
- % of adults with some college or an associate’s degree
- % of bachelor’s degree holders
- % of graduate or professional degree holders
- average quality of top universities
Ann Arbor with a population of only a bit more than 100,000 people ended up in the top seed, with the overall “education level rank” being the highest.
I am sure you would like to know which city came up last? Well, unfortunately for the residents of Brownsville-Harlingen, Texas, their city was ranked to be the least educated one in the US at the moment.
