Using new American Community Survey data along with their full methodology, the magazine assessed the average level of higher education obtained by the residents of 200 cities, coupled with their relative earning power of adults who live in them.
The two cities that beat us to that are Boulder, Colo., home of the University of Colorado, and Ann Arbor, Mich., home of the University of Michigan. Washington, D.C. became third.

Porfolio’s survey focused on the 200 largest metro areas in America, the largest being New York City and the smallest Burlington, Vt.
