WalletHub Study: California Is 2020’s Most Diverse State in America

With racial equality being a hot-button issue in 2020 and Hispanic Heritage Month in full swing, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2020’s Most & Least Diverse States in America, as well as accompanying videos.

To determine where the most idea and identity exchanges have occurred at the highest level in the U.S. — and where the population is relatively more homogeneous — WalletHub compared the 50 states across six key categories: socio-economic, cultural, economic, household, religious and political diversity.

Diversity in California (1=Most Diverse, 25=Avg.): 

  • 12th – Income Diversity
  • 2nd – Educational-Attainment Diversity
  • 2nd – Racial & Ethnic Diversity
  • 1st – Linguistic Diversity
  • 24th – Birthplace Diversity
  • 3rd – Industry Diversity*
  • 16th – Worker-Class Diversity*
  • 14th – Household-Type Diversity
  • 2nd – Household-Size Diversity
