To put this study together, WalletHub looked at 501 of the country's most populated cities, with no more than 10 cities per state, using these five dimensions: 1) Socioeconomic Diversity, 2) Cultural Diversity, 3) Economic Diversity, 4) Household Diversity, and 5) Religious Diversity. Those were broken down further into metrics like household income diversity, industry diversity, age diversity, and more. Each was graded on a 100-point scale and combined into an overall score used to rank the states.
Texas actually had three of the top 10 cities, with Houston in the top spot. That makes sense because the place is so damn big, but it's also surprising because Houston didn't rank particularly high up in any one category. Instead, it had a solid score in all of them. Jersey City, on the other hand, came in at first in Cultural Diversity and second overall, but had lower scores in categories like Economic Diversity and Religious Diversity. You also probably noticed that Maryland had three cities in the top 10, too.
On the other hand, Provo, Utah came in last overall and in dead last for Age Diversity and tied for last in Religious Diversity. It was joined by another Utah city, Orem. Maine and New Hampshire both also had two cities in the bottom 10.
