Iowa City Ranked 4th Smartest Metro Area in US
IOWA CITY, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- Iowa City has been ranked as the fourth smartest metro area in the country by the brain training company Lumosity.
Luminosity claims to have amassed the largest database of human cognitive performance, and the rankings are based on more than 40 million people.
The numbers in the study shift based on the way Lumosity grouped different areas. Iowa City ranks No. 4 among nearly 400 metro areas, but it sinks to No. 25 when ranked against 1,000 different cities. No matter how it got sliced, however, CBS 2 tested the people downtown on Tuesday, and found they were still pretty smart.
Iowa City wasn't the only Iowa town on the list. Among metro areas, Ames was ranked No. 5, and Cedar Rapids was No. 30.
