Most Diverse Cities To Live In

Diversity matters.

Diversity matters.

With all due respect to other wonderful places, I do love California and L.A. for it’s incredible diversity of people. Below is a ranking of the most diverse cities in the U.S. and not surprisingly, California has 6 of the top 10 most diverse cities. In fact, that diversity is why my wife and I moved to California. We wanted to ensure our mixed (Black and Hispanic) kids grew up around a lot of diversity and around a lot of other mixed people so they were not in an environment where being mixed was abnormal. The West indeed still ranks as having the largest number of mixed people and couples.

So here is the top 10 list of cities that are the most diverse according to a Men’s Health study:

1. San Jose, CA
2. Jersey City, NJ
3. San Francisco, CA
4. Honolulu, HI
5. New York, NY
6. Los Angeles, CA
7. Anaheim, CA
8. Oakland, CA
9. Providence, RI
10. Sacramento, CA

    Jersey represent!

    Regarding the data from which that list was drawn, do you know if any consideration was given to integration? That is, with a large enough sample, a cluster of ethnically isolated neighborhoods can be made to look diverse on paper. I’m not questioning the data, just curious.

    I chose my neighborhood based on access to the local school system, not because of its diversity, but I’m glad it turned out to be very blended. And what do you know? We call get along fine.
