In the U.S. the most educated states are generally the most conservative, according to a new study from the Brookings Institution, a think tank based in Washington, D.C. It found that states with the highest number of educated residents are in the West, the Northeast, the South, and the Midwest.
The study analyzed data from 2014 and 2015 from the U, S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and compared the scores for different demographic groups.
In the Midwest, the top-ranked states are in Kansas, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Missouri.
The top-ranking states are Arkansas, Florida, Missouri, and Tennessee.
In Florida, which has the highest percentage of African-Americans, the study found that the state has the most education-friendly policies, including a voucher program, which allows students to attend private schools that do not require the state to subsidize tuition.
And while Florida has seen its share of recent gun violence, the state is among the safest, with no shootings at a school since 2013, according the Brookings report.
The report found that most of the states with a low level of education are in “red” states that tend to be less conservative.
“Red states have been the most at risk from this, with more than twice as many deaths and assaults per capita from guns than the most progressive states,” Brookings said in a statement.
“For these red states, the most recent data shows that they are also the most likely to have high levels of gun violence.”
It’s not clear how much the data from the study is weighted in the analysis, but the most liberal states were the ones with the lowest levels of education.
It’s also not clear whether the report will have an impact on gun control laws, though some of the most Democratic states had the lowest rates of gun ownership, as measured by the gun death rate, according a Pew Research Center analysis of data from 2015.
A 2014 report by the National Academy of Sciences looked at data from more than 150,000 surveys across the country.
It concluded that states where there are a higher percentage of adults with college degrees are less likely to enact stricter gun laws.
A 2015 study by the Pew Research Institute found that people who attended college had more positive views of guns than those who didn’t, but that more education did not lead to more gun ownership.
A 2016 study by Duke University found that a majority of adults in the United States have a gun, but only a third of Americans who had a high school diploma or less said they were gun owners.
“The gun ownership rate is actually quite low in states with relatively low levels of educational attainment, including those in the Midwest and the Northeast,” Pew Research analyst Christopher Kloos said in the statement.
He added that people with less education are also more likely to use guns to defend themselves against intruders, which he says makes them more likely offenders.
“These findings reinforce the need for strong gun laws, such as tougher penalties for gun crimes and stronger background checks,” Kloers said.
“More guns means fewer crimes.”
The study also showed that states that are the most diverse tend to have higher rates of poverty, with people of color, women, and those in urban areas the most vulnerable.
“It is important to note that education and income do not account for a state’s relative risk for gun violence,” Brookings stated.
“If we want to reduce the risk of gun related violence in this country, we need to increase the availability of education and training.”
The report also found that more than a quarter of the nation’s states are the least educated.
This is not surprising given that they tend to fall in the more conservative areas, where more of the population has not gone to college.
