As a new education secretary takes office to reform America’s schools and with new research showing the positive effects of higher education on earnings over a lifetime, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2017’s Most & Least Educated States.

In order to determine where the most educated Americans live, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 50 states across 11 key metrics. The data set ranges from “percentage of adults aged 25 and older with at least a high school diploma” to “average university quality” to “gender gap in educational attainment.”
