Are we stoopid loosers?

I was surprised by this result: A Brookings Institution study analyzing an area's lack of educated workers relative to the demand for those employees, reveals the Inland region has the fourth worst "education gap" in the country. I was surprised by this because my experience has been the opposite. Although I live in the Inland Empire, all of my full-time jobs since 1991 have been outside of the Inland Empire - primarily because when I was hunting for jobs in 1991 and 1994, the jobs that required my education and experience were all outside of the area. What is your experience? Does it differ?
