Very hard to compete with places like Raleigh.

They are all low by national standards. I believe Gainesville and Tallahasse are the most educated.

Tampa and Orlando are among the lowest major cities in the US with around 24% (Tampa) and 26% (Orlando) of residents holding a Bachelor's degree. Jacksonville is only at 17%.

Correct, Tallahassee is at 45% and Gainesville is 43% in terms of percent of residents with a Bachelor's degree. In the NC Triangle area Chapel Hill is 74%, Cary 61%, Carrboro 61%, Apex 59%, Morrisville 56%, Raleigh 45% and Durham at 42%. Interesting how it's very clustered (or even isolated) in Florida and more spread out in NC.

According to this, national average is only 28% with higher degrees, so only Jax looks that bad here. Florida average is 28%. What accounts for so many higher degrees in those areas of NC - because most of NC is NOT that educated - I am assuming high tech/research jobs or something?

Link on Educational Attainment by Florida County (through 2010):

Florida Educational attainment - persons 25 years and over - percent bachelor's degree or higher, 2005-2009 by County

And by North Carolina County:

The difference "statewide" in attainment between Florida and North Carolina is not very appreciable:

*** These #s are for people age 25 and over, which is probably the best indicator of the type of people actually working and living in the county, vs. students who are "residents."

Nice data. Confirms what mostly has been said. The main difference is at the top of both state ranks.
