From Business Insider:


Using data from the Census Bureau, we found the town in every state with the biggest share of adults with at least a bachelor's degree."

The American Community Survey (ACS) is an annual survey run by the Census Bureau to allow the government, corporate and academic researchers, and anyone who is curious about demographics to better understand the population of the US. Among many other subjects, the ACS includes questions about respondents' education levels.

Using the 2012 to 2017 ACS estimates for places with an at least 1,000-person population, Business Insider made a map showing the town in each state with the highest percentage of adults over 25 who have at least a bachelor's degree.

Some of the places were college and university campuses, and we excluded those from our analysis, instead focusing on incorporated towns and cities and unincorporated census-designated areas.
