08/30/2016

Tallahassee is ranked the 11th most educated city in the country, according to a study released by Wallet Hub.

Beating out the capital city were Ann Arbor, Mich.; the DC-Virginia-Maryland area and Madison, Wisc.

But Tallahassee placed higher than Raleigh, N.C., Colorado Springs, Colo., and the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell region.

Analysts for the research firm compared the 150 most populated metropolitan statistical areas in two categories, educational attainment and quality of education and attainment gap.

Educational attainment included the percentage of adults 25 and older with at least a bachelor’s degree and percentage of adults 25 and older with at least a graduate or professional degree.

Quality of education included the ranking of public schools, the average quality of universities, number of children enrolled in top 200 universities per capita and the racial gap in educational attainment.
