If You're Smart (or not so smart but have a college degree), You'll Be at Home in Northern Virginia

Northern Virginia tops for College DegreesHey Smarty Pants!

Do you think you're smart?  Let's call it educated since that's what we're really talking about since after all you can be educated and have some letters after your name and a diploma on your wall but not necessarily have smarts.

Anyways, if you have a college degree, you'll fit right in here in Northern Virginia.

I already knew that Washington is the nation's best-educated metropolitan area, both in terms of bachelor's and graduate degrees.  See my 2007 post, It's the Smart Move: Greater Washington D.C. has the Most Educated Populace in the Country

According to to a report in the Washington Post, the D.C. region claims 6 of the nation's 10 best-educated counties, and the top 3 are in Northern Virginia (and so is #7).

Arlington, Virginia may as well be called SmartTown, USA.  After all, 68% of adults have bachelor degrees in Arlington County -- more than 8% higher than the next highest jurisdiction.

Next up is the City of Alexandria with 59.9% of the adult population holding a bachelor's degree.

Following close behind, in third place is Fairfax County with 58.8% of adults being college-educated.

The rest of the top 10 best-educated counties in the United States are as follows:

Howard Co., Maryland; Montgomery Co., Maryland, New York (Manhattan); Loudoun Co, VA; Boulder, Colorado; Orange Co, North Carolina; and Marin Co., California.

If You're Smart, you'll fit in here in Northern Virginia.
