Bluff City IQ

Posted on Thu, Jun 15, 2006 at 4:00 AM recently conducted a study in which they examined the concentration of brainpower in communities of all sizes across America. By computing the percentage of cities’ population with high school, college, or graduate education, the Web site assigned each city a score and ranked them to find the smartest US city. In the Large City category…drumroll please… Seattle was ranked #1 with 47 percent of its adult population holding a bachelor’s degree, and 17 percent with advanced degrees. Memphis was ranked 42nd among America’s largest cities with 13 percent of the population holding a bachelor’s degree and 7.7 percent with a graduate or professional degree.
