ANN ARBOR – Ann Arbor – where nearly 60 percent of residents 25 and older hold a least a bachelor’s degree – is the most educated city in the U.S., a new study released by WalletHub says.
Released July 19, the study compares the country’s 150 largest U.S. metropolitan statistical areas across 11 metrics. Data ranges from the share of adults age 25 and older with a bachelor’s degree or higher, to the racial education gap, to the quality of the public school system.
Home to the University of Michigan, the personal finance website reports that Ann Arbor’s 55.9% of residents 25 and older with a bachelor’s degree is the highest in the country. Ann Arbor has topped the website’s annual ranking the past several years.
Other large Michigan metro areas appearing on the list include Lansing (29), Grand Rapids (70), Detroit (78) and Flint (123).
