New survey ranks Boston as 7th most literate city

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Better go dig out your library cards, Boston residents.

A national survey of America's most literate cities has found that Boston has dropped two places in the ranks to seventh place.

Central Connecticut State University president Jack Miller conducts the annual survey that measures resources for reading in America's 75 biggest cities.

The study uses research data for a half-dozen key indicators, including library and Internet resources, newspaper circulation and booksellers.

The data are compared against population rates to develop literacy profiles for each city.

Topping the charts this year was Washington, followed by Seattle, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Denver and St. Paul.
