College Towns and Unemployment

At Sully's digs.

Turns out that college towns (e.g. Chapel Hill, Ann Arbor, Charlottesville, Champaign-Urbana) tend to have lower unemployment rates than their states' averages and lower rates than prominent large cities in those states.

I'd like to see comparisons to similarly-sized towns, actually...I'm not sure how much it tells us to compare Chapel Hill to Charlotte...
