Portland ranks 13 out of the top 20 cities with plentiful jobs requiring a college education, according to a study by City Lab

City Lab ranked the 100 largest U.S. metro areas with help from the economic and labor market data firm EMSI and the Bureau of Labor Statistics

See Slides Below: Top 20 Cities With Most White-Collar Jobs 

The rankings are based on five key factors: percentage change in jobs requiring college education from 2010-2014; percentage of 25-34 year olds who hold these positions; average wages for these jobs; concentration of these jobs in the area; and share of new jobs requiring a college education that can be attributed to local economic conditions or competitiveness. 

A March 2014 report by Education Department's National Center for Education Statistics found that nationally only 64 percent of 2008 graduates had full-time jobs one year out of college. However, from 2010 to 2014 the U.S. economy added 2.2 million jobs requiring college education, according to City Lab. 

The 100 largest metros accounted for 1.7 million of these new jobs, roughly eight in 10.
