The data for this survey was compiled by Safe Home and took into account things like "college degrees, high school graduation, professional or advanced degrees and test scores, giving various weights to different measures." As the survey put it: “Our analysis of the available data covering educational achievement and test scores found that the smartest U.S. state is New Jersey, and (sorry to this state) the dumbest one is Idaho. New Jersey’s total score of 337.8 was safely ahead of No. 2 Utah, with its score of 324.” So congratulations to our education system here in New Jersey, number one in America.
