College graduates play a significant role in a city’s economic success. However, attaining and keeping graduates is a struggle for some urban centers.
The national average of metro area residents with a four-year degree is 32%. In California, Contra Costa County leads the way with 44% and Fresno trails with fewer than 20% of its residents with a four-year degree as of 2009, according to the U.S. Census.
Earlier this year, metro areas consisting of more than 33% college graduates had an average unemployment rate of 7.5%. Cities with fewer than 17% college graduates had a much higher unemployment rate of 10.5%. Other benefits of having a four-year degree include longer life expectancies, higher household incomes and lower divorce rates on average.
