Boulder and Fort Collins #1 and #2 in Brain Concentration

Nov 5, 2018 | Uncategorized

An interesting report was just published by Bloomberg showing U.S. metro areas suffering a “brain drain” with the outflow of people with advanced degrees and white-collar job losses and pay reductions in science, technology, engineering and math.

And a companion index called “Brain Concentration Index” shows just the opposite. Colorado is well represented on this list as the state with three cities – 1. Boulder 2. Fort Collins, and 10. Denver.

The top 15 cities on the brainpower list are:

  1. Boulder, CO
  2. Fort Collins,
  3. San Jose, CA
  4. Durham, NC
  5. San Francisco, CA
  6. Washington, DC
  7. Raleigh, NC
  8. Madison, WI
  9. Seattle, WA
  10. Denver, CO
  11. Boston, MA
  12. Austin, TX
  13. Corvallis, OR
  14. Portland, OR
  15. Ann Arbor, MI
