Washington, D.C. tops degree-holders list

An analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data says the Washington, D.C., area has the highest percentage of residents with college degrees.

In Washington and suburbs, more than 47 percent of people 25 years or older hold college or professional school degrees, CNNMoney.com reported.

The national average is just over 25 percent.

Nearly 44 percent of San Francisco’s residents have college degrees or a professional education, and Silicon Valley’s San Jose is third in the education race with more than 43 percent holding degrees.

Not surprisingly, areas with highly educated residents also rank high in annual income, the report said.

Washington, D.C., has the highest median household income of any metro area with a population of more than 1 million residents.
