A new list discovered the 50 "least educated" Zip codes in the nation. One town from New York ranked near the top of the list.

Earlier this week 24/7 Wall St. released a list of "The Least Educated ZIP Codes in the Country."

About 32 percent of American adults older than 25 have at least a bachelor’s degree. However, across the nation, there are some ZIP codes where less than 5 percent of adults have a degree from college.

24/7 Wall St used education data from the U.S. Census Bureau to figure out the least educated ZIP codes in the United States. One ZIP code from New York made the list.


"To determine America’s least educated ZIP codes, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed five-year estimates of the percentage of adults 25 years and over with at least a bachelor’s degree from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2019 American Community Survey," Samuel Stebbins states in his article about the website's methodology.
