The Austin area has become a buzzing hub where young professionals, huge companies like Google, and celebrities have increasingly relocated over the past decade.

The state capital, as well as two of its surrounding suburbs, Round Rock and Georgetown, ranked No. 10 in a study by WalletHub published on July 18 to find the United States' most and least educated cities in 2022.

The data was based on 150 of the largest towns in the country. It revealed where the most intellectually developed Americans are using their degrees.

The website rated different aspects of each place, like the quality of education offered and how many citizens, 25 years and older, hold a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Austin and the two suburbs scored spot 13 for the gap between the quality of education offered and the level of schooling for this demographic.

Additionally, they earned the 11th rank for educational attainment, or, simply put, the share of adults who currently live there and graduated from different institutions.

Other Texan towns made the list but didn't rank as high, including the Dallas — Fort Worth area (No. 73) and Houston (No. 88). Some were at the tail end of the rated areas, with McAllen — Edinburg — Mission in 148 and Brownsville taking the second-last position.

In stark contrast to the state capital, the South Texas cities that include the regions surrounding McAllen and Brownsville have the least amount of High School and College graduates currently living there.
