America's Smartest Cities

Which metropolis has the most intelligent residents? The Daily Beast crunched the data on the brainpower of America’s 55 largest cities, from first-to-worst. How did your hometown rank?


Metro Area Population: 6,300,006

Daily Beast IQ Score: 64

Folks in Dallas-Fort Worth, according to the data, are less interested than most in reading and voting and, like Houston, the number of higher academic institutions per capita is paltry. No excuses, given the metro area is the size of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined.

LSB: Seven away from being the worst! Ok, so we're not all that smart, but we had a much better ranking from Men's Magazine - 14th fattest city in the U.S. Bring on the barbeque!
