The Most Educated Town In Every State

The American Community Survey is an annual survey run by the Census Bureau to allow the government, corporate and academic researchers, and anyone who is curious about demographics to better understand the population of the U.S. Among many other subjects, the ACS includes questions about respondents' education levels.

Using the 2008-2012 ACS estimates for places with at least 1,000 population, Business Insider made a map showing, for each state, the town with the highest percentage of adults over 25 who have at least a bachelor's degree:most educated places table

4. Goldstream, Alaska?

I had to look it up, and I've lived here almost 40 years. Seems to be a suburb of Fairbanks, population 3,000 or so, but I never heard of it. Hmm...

5. And Lost Creek, Texas

is just a subdivision outside of Austin. I guess they incorporated.

8. This would be more interesting if they culled out all the big city suburbs on the list.

Hard to define, perhaps, but places like Lake Oswego and Yarrow Point aren't really distinct towns, but are just bedroom suburbs of Portland and Seattle.
