D.C.-Arlington-Alexandria Listed among Most, Least Educated Cities

With more than 97% of educators reporting learning loss among their students due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the personal-finance website WalletHub recently released its 2021 report on “The Most & Least Educated Cities in America.”
To determine where the most educated Americans are choosing to settle down, WalletHub compared the 150 largest U.S. metropolitan statistical areas, or MSAs, across 11 key metrics, according to data contained in a Wallethub.com press release. The data also set ranges from the share of adults aged 25 and older with a bachelor’s degree or higher to the racial education gap to the quality of the public-school system.
“Highly educated cities’ are better able to withstand economic shocks only if they have a diversified economy. For instance, New York has suffered at times from an overreliance on industries like finance,” Ann Marcus, professor, New York University, said in a statement. “If a dominant industry curtails its activities, the economic decline will accelerate. At this moment, midtown Manhattan in New York City with its historic commitment to office space for professional and white-collar workers is facing serious challenges as many companies are shedding real estate in favor of remote staffing. Not only are many of those jobs gone, but the services that supported them are impacted.”
Listed below are educational characteristics of the D.C.-Arlington-Alexandria area where 1 indicated Most Educated; 75 indicated Avg.:
•37th – % of High School Diploma Holders
•3rd – % of bachelor’s degree Holders
•9th – % of associate’s degree Holders or College-Experienced Adults
•1st – % of Graduate or Professional Degree Holders
•31st – Quality of Public-School System
•16th – Avg. Quality of Universities
