    above and below the state s overall average college educational attainment of 25 8 percent More than 80 percent of N C counties 82 fall below this average Anson County east of Charlotte has the state s lowest rate at 7 2 percent North Carolina has four counties where college graduates make up 40 percent or more of the population Durham Mecklenburg Orange and Wake The rapid growth of Charlotte and Raleigh over the last two decades has created a new situation in this traditionally rural and small town state The two counties that contain Charlotte and Raleigh Mecklenburg and Wake now move the needle on state averages in ways that they could not in the past If the population of Mecklenburg and Wake counties were omitted from the calculation of college educated population the state average would drop from 25 8 percent to 21 7 percent The weight of these two large highly educated counties helps move the state average much closer to the national average 27 5 percent The 18 counties above the state average in college degrees are ranked in the table right Several of these counties besides Mecklenburg and Wake are home to larger cities Durham City of Durham Forsyth Winston Salem Guilford Greensboro and New Hanover Wilmington Chatham and Union are fast growing suburban counties Other counties at the top ranks of college educated populations are not home to large cities but do contain large state universities Orange UNC Chapel Hill Pitt East Carolina University Watauga Appalachian State University and Jackson Western Carolina University are examples Bill McCoy emeritus faculty at UNC Charlotte noted that It seems like a new variable is the retiree relocations to this state primarily in the mountains and to a somewhat lesser degree in the coastal areas We have known for a while that the older adults who do move tend to be better off financially physically and other ways than those who do not Buncombe Henderson Jackson Polk Transylvania and Watauga counties are in mountain areas considered to be attracting retirees New Hanover and Dare are coastal counties Moore County home to the golfing centers of Pinehurst and Southern Pines is also considered a retiree destination To download a list of all N C counties ranked by percent of population with college degree click here The link between education and income combined with the geography of educational attainment across the state and country points to challenges ahead for policymakers The growth of cities the growing importance of universities and the choices educated retirees make about where to live are all factors that will shape North Carolina s prosperity in the future The realities of national patterns in education also point to the growing importance of the state s cities as engines of economic growth and income John Chesser Photograph by Nancy Pierce 1 Julian Tiffany A and Robert A Kominski 2011 Education and Synthetic Work Life Earnings Estimates American Community Survey Reports ACS 14 U S Census Bureau Washington
