Lumosity Data Ranks America’s Smartest Cities
Date:6/25/2013

San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

Lumosity today revealed rankings for the smartest cities in America based on an analysis of its database of human cognitive performance. The rankings were based on de-identified data from over 3 million users in the U.S. between the ages of 18-75 who had played multiple Lumosity games. The data objectively measured real differences in cognitive performance across geographic areas by examining scores from users’ first few sessions playing games across five cognitive areas: memory, processing speed, flexibility, attention and problem solving. These cognitive performance scores were then ranked by location.

“One of the most interesting findings from this analysis is that most of the top metro areas contain major research universities, suggesting that education is an important predictor of cognitive performance,” said Daniel Sternberg, Ph.D., Data Scientist at Lumosity. “Neuroscience research has found that those who are engaged in learning and cognitively stimulating activities throughout the lifetime build up a ‘cognitive reserve’ that helps maintain and improve cognitive performance.”

Comparing the Lumosity data with trend data from the U.S. Census American Community Survey data, which is an ongoing statistical survey that samples a small percentage of the population every year, found that the percentage of individuals within a metro area with advanced degrees or pursuing advanced degrees were strong predictors of the cognitive performance score for that city. These findings are consistent with existing neuroplasticity research indicating that those with advanced degrees tend to perform better cognitively throughout the lifespan.

Below are the rankings for the top 50 smartest metro areas.

1.    Ithaca, NY
2.    State College, PA
3.    Lafayette-West Lafayette, IN
