Wallethub has conducted a series of studies focusing on the diversity of the United States based on socioeconomic, cultural, and economic diversity. They tallied the scores across the five major diversity categories for 501 of the largest cities across 13 metrics. Our very own Austin, Texas comes out as #18 on the list of most diverse U.S. cities. Read on to learn more about WalletHubs methodology.
- Large cities: More than 300,000 residents
- Midsize cities: 100,000 to 300,000 residents
- Small cities: Fewer than 100,000 residents
They then evaluated the five dimensions using 13 relevant metrics. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most diversity. The cities weighted averages were weighted across all metrics to calculate its overall score. As we continue to grow as a country, the importance of staying diverse will also grow. We are proud to live in a place where diversity is well established and encouraged, way to go Austin, TX!
