    Which U.S. Cities Are Most, Least Racially Diverse?

    September 7, 2012, 12:01 AM

    By Conor Dougherty

    A new study released today by the US2010 Project at Brown University shows how the country has become much more diverse at the metropolitan level. The report scores the diversity of the nation’s metro areas by how evenly a place’s population is spread across the five racial groups: Non-Hispanic whites, Hispanics of any race, African-Americans, Asians and an “other” category that is largely made up of Native Americans, Alaska Natives and people of two or more races.

    A few cities ranked:

    2 – San Francisco/Oakland

    4 – Washington DC

    5 – New York City

    7 – Las Vegas

    30 – Austin

    150 – Cleveland

    157 – Portland

    139 – Indianapolis

    172 – Columbus

    242 – Cincinnati

    365 – Marietta, Ohio

    366 – Laredo, Texas (last place)
