Where do the country's most educated citizens live? In a recent report, the Brookings Institute analyzed 2008 American Community Survey data against 1990 Census data to find out. The verdict? Washington, D.C. remains the most-educated metro area in the country -- 46.8 percent of its populace over the age of 25 has a bachelor's degree (see an interactive map of Brookings' data here.)

In June, John Carrol University graduate student Rob Pitingolo's ranking of cities by "educational attainment density" determined that San Francisco was the best-educated city.

See where other metro areas ranked below -- and let us know how yours did in the comments section.
