Well, this might not be great news for us here in the California media world.

A new study ranked cities in America on its literacy and no California cities made the Top 10 and just one city fell into the Top 30.

An annual study done by Central Connecticut State University ranked the literacy of the nation’s major cities (population of 250,000 and above) on six factors: newspaper circulation, number of bookstores, library resources, periodical publishing resources, educational attainment and Internet resources.

San Francisco ranked No. 12 on the list, falling from its No. 5 spot in last year’s survey. The second California city, San Diego, didn’t make the list until the No. 33 spot.

Oakland ranked at No. 35 and Sacramento ranked at 41.5 as the only other two cities to fall in the Top 50.

The good news, for sites like PublicCEO.com, is that in terms of rankings of Internet resources, California has four of the Top 10 cities: San Francisco (t-6), Oakland (t-6), San Jose (t-6) and San Diego (10).

Seattle, Wash. ranks as the most literate city in America. See the full list of rankings here.
