Recent John Carrol University graduate Rob Pitingolo was interested in finding out the "educational attainment density" (read: number of college degree-holders) in American cities. So he gathered the data and charted it -- and what he found is visually revealing if not surprising. San Francisco leads the pack by a considerable margin with more than 7,000 degrees per square mile, followed by New York, Boston and Washington, D.C.
Pitingolo lays out the data and more on his blog Extraordinary Observations.
