Metro areas with the Most College-Educated Residents

As another college graduation season draws to a close, the New York Times reports the results of a small analysis Brookings conducted on college degree attainment rates in metropolitan areas. They examined the share of adults age 25 and over in the 100 largest U.S. metro areas who held at least a bachelor’s degree in 2010, versus in 1970. (The Times’ website provides a table with the key data.)

NYC is #10, Albany/Schenectady/Troy is #20, Rochester is tied for #22.
