I must admit, I never have either.
But in my net surfing today, I came across just that information. Don't ask how. I can't even remember what I was searching for, when I came across this page and it immediately peaked my interest enough to continue reading and then to post for all of you to read.
Any guesses as to which city it is?
The study used the US census to analyze the educational levels of adults in nearly 16,000 cities to come up with the city holding the most brainpower in the US.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that Ann Arbor, MI tops the small cities of America. It makes sense that college towns dominate the rankings of the small communities. Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan.
Wondering what the brainiest middle-sized city is?
You can read the whole study for yourself here.
All this made me wonder, which is the dumbest city in America? (I bet you are wondering that, too, aren't you?)
Well, after a little searching of the site, I found that, too.
Miami, Florida holds this dubious distinction.
Here's what they had to say about Miami:
The population of the Miami metropolitan area is growing rapidly, and its economy is cooking along. But there's a warning sign in the region's core.
The city of Miami has the lowest brainpower rating of any large community in America. Two-thirds of its adults never went to college. Nearly half -- 47 percent -- didn't even graduate from high school.
Two California communities -- Santa Ana and East Los Angeles -- have the worst scores among medium and small places, respectively.
You can find the bottom five of each level here.
