- Wide disparity in where the colleges are concentrated – most educated population will likely be from coastal cities (where the circles are the biggest)
- One positive to note is the absence of a trend – there are selective (and supposedly higher ROI) higher institutions in practically every state; the Northeast has bigger circles yes but they also have more people
- The bubble is also not as bad as it looks . The map below show where the colleges are located; the coverage isn’t so bad given that the areas without them aren’t that populated
Bottom line is – access to quality education looks proportional to population, but it’s a numbers game at the end of the day. As the educated population continue to be from similar regions, the educated class is still a bubble of its own with regional biases.
