When choosing a place to live, many factors play a role in this decision. You want a good education for your children, but living in a highly educated area has other advantages. More education means higher wages, which in turn means economic growth and higher tax revenues. The good news is that two cities in North Carolina are in the top 10 most educated. The bad news? 4 cities in North Carolina have been ranked in the bottom 50 least educated. This is according to the latest WalletHub listing. The list is of the most and least educated cities in America in 2022.

How do you determine the most educated cities? WalletHub compared the 150 largest metropolitan statistical areas on 11 key metrics. They measured the proportion of adults aged 25 and over with a bachelor’s degree or higher. Then, this number was compared to the quality of the public school system and the education gender gap.

Another major city, absent from this list, sat at 53. Which out of 150 is still the top half at least. What does it mean? There is a wide variety of education levels throughout the state of North Carolina. So, when choosing where to live in the state, it’s important to do your research.
