Educated, Yes, But Smarter? Happier?
The “South Bay” (San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale) part of Silicon Valley is the 3rd most educated region in America, when looking at college degrees:
Silicon Valley is the third most educated region in America in 2017, according to a new study from WalletHub. The website looked at the share of adults 25 and older who have a bachelor’s degree and found that only Ann Arbor, Michigan, home to the University of Michigan’s flagship campus, and the Washington, DC, area are more educated than the San Jose-Sunnvyale-Santa Clara region. According to the study, 71 percent of adults 25 and older in the area have at least some college experience, 47 percent have a bachelor’s degree or higher, and 21 percent have a graduate degree or higher.
Must be hot there, with so many degrees 🙂
