A recent study released by a San Francisco-based company ranked Starkville and Oxford among the 100 “smartest” cities in the nation.

Oxford and Starkville were recently ranked among the 100 “smartest” cities in the nation by the San Francisco-based company, Lumosity, a brain-training exercise developer. In order to create brain-training exercises, the company collects data in five cognitive performance areas: speed, attention, flexibility, memory and problem solving

According to the company’s released study, Lumosity gathered more than 3 million sets of data from users between the ages of 15-85 who had completed at least one game in each of the five areas.

When all was said and done, two Mississippi towns ranked among the top 100; Oxford ranked No. 74, as Starkville came in at No. 34.

Alabama had only one town hit the top 100 list, the Auburn-Opelika area at No. 44. Cities in Arkansas, Louisiana nor Tennessee were mentioned in the top 100, however, Memphis, Tenn. as No. 396 of the full list of 478 cities listed in the study.

Several other Mississippi cities were listed among the 478: Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula region was listed at No. 419, Jackson ranked No. 433, and Tupelo came in at No. 439.
