The Most and Least Brainy Cities in America

By Barb Adams

Do you live in a college town?  Take a look around, chances are it’s one of the brainiest cities in America.

Portfolio Magazine recently ranked 200 cities in order of relative brainpower.  Using new American Community Survey data, it looked at cities’ average earning power and median level of educational attainment to determine which towns had the most cerebral force.

Ranking among the top brainiest cities are Boulder, Colorado, home of the University of Colorado; Ann Arbor, Michigan, home of the University of Michigan; Washington, D.C., which has several colleges and universities; Durham, North Carolina, where Duke University is located, and FORT COLLLINS, Colorado (WHOO HOO!), home to Colorado State University and also home to Amerika Now.

The five least brainiest cities include Merced, California, McAllen-Edinburg, Texas, Brownsville, Texas, Visalia, California, and Bakersfield, California.

Portfolio’s survey focused on the 200 largest metro areas in America, the largest being New York City and the smallest Burlington, Vermont.
