The American Institute of Economic Research has released its top 75 College Destinations Index from 2012.

The study is based on the following categories:

  • Student diversity.
     
  • Unemployment rate.
     
  • Degree attainment.
     
  • Earning potential among others. 

The cities were divided up into five different categories based on the size of their population.

Here's how Texas and Louisiana cities stacked up:

  • For the "large metropolitan" category: Houston came in 9th and was followed by Dallas at 10th.
     
  • For the "midsize metropolitan" category: Austin came in 2nd, New Orleans 13 and San Antonio 15th.
     
  • For the "small metropolitan" category: Lubbock came in 11th and Killeen 19th.
