I give up.

The list is by city proper (and boroughs in the case of Manhattan and Brooklyn); not sure what the population cut-off is though. It's definitely not an exhaustive list though.

Raleigh city overall sits at 47.5% according to the Census website.
Durham city overall sits at 46.8% according to the Census website.
These numbers are for all adults: not just those in the 25-34 age group category.

@Muttiny77, the list appears random since Raleigh proper is larger than 5 of the cities on the list.

I just chose the core city of most (not all) of our larger MSAs. Milwaukee and Buffalo are not among our largest metros but I wanted to add some Rust Belt cities for comparison purposes.

Thanks. May I please ask again for the link to the data set so that others can search deeper into it for other cities?

Gotcha. I'm very surprised to see Charleston, SC sitting at 59.5%; that's pretty darn high.
