Sheboygan County 48th on list of smartest cities

Sheboygan County ranks among the top smartest areas in the United States, according to the latest report from Lumosity titled, “Lumosity’s Smartest Cities 2013.” This study collected data from over three million people across the nation, with participants ranging in age from 18 – 75 years. Sheboygan County ranks 48th on this list.

The report measured scores of cognitive training exercises in five areas: attention, flexibility, memory, processing speed and problem solving. The median score for each of the five areas was then used to determine the overall ranking for each location. The locations (known as Designated Marketing Areas) were determined using the GeoLiteCity database.

Many of top cities and towns on the list are “college towns”, including Ithaca, N.Y., State College, PA and Lafeyette, IN. Daniel Sternberg, Lumosity Data Scientist commented on this finding by stating, “Neuroscience research has found that those who are engaged in learning and cognitively stimulating activities throughout the lifetime build up a ‘cognitive reserve’ that helps maintain and improve cognitive performance.” This makes perfect sense as Sheboygan County is home to three fantastic higher-education institutions: Lakeland College, Lakeshore Technical College and University of Wisconsin – Sheboygan. In addition to this ranking, Sheboygan County was recently named the 16th most innovative area in the nation.
