Study: New Mexico 2017’s 6th Most Diverse State In U.S.

With Hispanic Heritage Month in full swing and the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy in question, drawing economic and demographic implications for the U.S., the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2017’s Most & Least Diverse States in America.

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’s analysts compared the 50 states across five key categories: socio-economic, cultural, economic, household and religious diversity.

  • 14th – Educational-Attainment Diversity
  • 8th – Racial & Ethnic Diversity
  • 2nd – Linguistic Diversity
  • 12th – Birthplace Diversity
  • 26th – Occupational Diversity*
