Eau Claire on list of top 100 smartest cities


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Eau Claire ranks 92nd in a study looking at America's smartest cities, according to new research from Lumosity.

The study ranked U.S. cities by their raw cognitive performance. It's based on data from more than 3 million people in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 75 who played several Lumosity brain-training games. The games measured performance across five cognitive areas: memory, processing speed, flexibility, attention, and problem solving. Then the scores were ranked by location.

Other top cities in Wisconsin include: Madison (8), Appleton (12), Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis (26), La Crosse-Onalaska (36), Stevens Point (40), Sheboygan (48), Oshkosh-Neenah (51), Fond du Lac (54) and Wisconsin Rapids-Marshfield (83).

Two metro areas that span Wisconsin and Minnesota also made the list. The Twin Cities area came in at 33 and the Duluth area ranked 69.
