Wallet Hub released a list of the most ethnically diverse cities in America. According to their data, at this rate, there won't be a race or ethnic group that holds the majority in The United States by 2045.
How did they find this information? They checked the populations of large, medium and small cities ranging from 100,000 residents and up. Then they gave points based on the ethnic diversity in each of those cities. They also looked at the languages that are commonly spoken. They also pulled data on residents who were documented as being born in America.
