We all know the U.S. is the great melting pot, but with the increasing ethnic and racial diversification, this is truer now than at any other point in our history. And projections by the U.S. Census Bureau ahead of the 2020 Census indicate that this trend will continue its upward trajectory.
With this in mind, the experts at personal finance website WalletHub recently have released a list of the most ethnically diverse cities in the country. To do this, WalletHub compared more than 500 of the largest U.S. cities using metrics such as ethnic and racial diversity, linguistic diversity, and birthplace diversity.
Jersey City, New Jersey was found to be the most ethnically diverse city followed closely by Gaithersburg, Maryland and Germantown, Maryland.
Overall, three Puget Sound cities placed on the list including Kent which just barely made it into the top ten with an overall diversity score of 67.24. Renton clocked in at number 20 with a diversity score of 65.47 and Federal Way placed at 24.
