Atlanta Tops U.S. List of the Most Literate Cities

Within the 75 cities surveyed, the average newspaper circulation declined more than 37 percent while library usage has remained unchanged.

“While Americans are becoming more and more educated in terms of their time spent in school and their achieved education level, they are decreasing in terms of literate behaviors,” Dr. Miller suggested.

Researchers also found that the percent of bachelor degree holders in major cities has remained steady within the past twelve years.

Dr. Miller believes that this trend simply indicates a shift in literacy methods.

“The context for reading is undergoing dramatic, rapidly increasing change on a number of fronts. These are truly fascinating times for those of us who study literacy,” Dr. Miller said. “But I am concerned about what these changes portend for our country.”
