About the Rankings

The Census Bureau has released the latest estimates from the American Community Survey for all cities in the country with a population of 60,000 or more with sufficient data to estimate the percent with a post graduate degree. We have crunched the numbers and the rankings are in. See the 550 places with the highest percent with a post graduate degree below, and the lowest percent with a post graduate degree places at the bottom of the list.

Doctors (PhD, MD, and DMD/DDS) and lawyers routinely make the lists of highest paying careers in America. Our rankings include those with a Master's, professional, or doctorate degree. Having a high concentration of these well-educated professionals can bring new industries and revenue to an area: from technology research to hospitals. Where do these high income professionals choose to live? Find out below.
