Colorado is ranked second amongst the smartest states in America.

Well done, Colorado.

The Street, a digital financial media company, compiled the rankings and only Massachusetts is "smarter" than Colorado. The rankings were posted last week on its website. The “dumbest” state is West Virginia.

Here's what The Street came up with for Colorado.

-Percentage of population with bachelor's degrees: 35.9 percent

-Median household income in 2012: $56,765

-Average SAT score 2013: 1721.

"Colorado was listed as the third best state for business in the country by CNBC in 2010. The state has the third highest concentration of professional, scientific and management workers behind only Maryland and Virginia and has a median household income of $56,765. 6.6% percent of the state’s households earn above $200,000 a year. Samsonite, Russel Stover Candies, Coors beer and Celestial Seasonings teas are all headquartered in the state. The United States Air Force Academy calls the state home as well as multiple military installations including NORAD."
