West Austin: the most educated place in TexasWest Austin: the most educated place in Texashttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=30882014-09-12T07:41:00Z2014-09-12T00:00:00Z

TRAVIS COUNTY - The Lost Creek neighborhood in West Austin is the most educated place in Texas and ranks seventh in the United States, according to a report by Business Insider (BI).

With about 5,000 residents, Lost Creek has its own census tract, and BI relied on U.S. Census Bureau data and tracts to compile its map and list of the most educated towns in every state.

Like Lost Creek, most of the identified areas are places just outside big cities. BI reports that 86 percent of residents there have a bachelor's degree or higher.

Riches often follow a stout education, so it's probably not surprising that the Lost Creek area recently made the Austin Business Journal's list of the wealthiest areas of Central Texas.

For the full report, see Business Insider.
