Johnston topped a list from national career website Zippia of the smartest cities in the state of Iowa.
Zippia, using census data, educational statistics and college degree data of cities across the state with populations of 10,000 citizens or more, found that Johnston was the 'smartest' in the state.
Johnston found itself at the top thanks to their high percentage of adults, 25 years or older, with a college degree and a very low rate of high school dropouts versus the other 39 largest cities in the state.
The data comes from the latest American Community Survey from the census.
