Most Educated Big Cities In The Country


To identify the most educated big cities in America, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed educational attainment data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2021 American Community Survey. Metro areas are ranked by the share of adults 25 and older with a bachelor’s degree or higher. 

Supplemental data on adults with a high school diploma, median household income, and total population are also from the 2021 ACS. 

We also considered July 2022 unemployment rates at the metro area level from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
