For the second consecutive year, Ann Arbor has been named the most educated city in the United States by WalletHub. In order to determine the most educated city WalletHub compared the 150 largest U.S. metropolitan statistical areas across nine key metrics. Those categories were: the number of people between 20-34 years old, level of education, number of cafes per capita and number of yoga studios per capita.
The company determined where the most educated Americans are choosing to settle. In order to do so, the website compared the 150 largest U.S. metropolitan statistical areas across two dimensions, including education level and quality of education and attainment gap.
Their data set ranges from the percentages of adults aged 25 and older with a bachelor’s degree or higher to the attainment gap between women and men.
Ann Arbor came in first for education and fourth for quality of education and attainment gap.
