Counties in the Research Triangle area are red and counties sometimes included are in orange.

The Research Triangle, commonly referred to as "The Triangle", is a metropolitan region in the Piedmont of North Carolina in the United States, anchored by the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and the town of Chapel Hill. Another popular term for this area is Raleigh-Durham, which is derived from the names from the area's two largest cities. The major research universities of North Carolina State University, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are located in this region respectively. The "Triangle" name was cemented in the public consciousness in the 1950s with the creation of Research Triangle Park, home to numerous high-tech companies and enterprises. Although the name is commonly used to refer to the cities, "The Triangle" originally referred to the universities, whose research facilities and the educated workforce they provide are the major attraction for businesses located in the Park. The Triangle's population is the most educated in the United States, with the highest number of Ph.D.s per capita.[1] The region is not be confused with "The Triad", which is the region directly west of the Triangle.
