NEW YORK, NY – 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.

Diversity in New Jersey (1=Most Diverse, 25=Avg.):
• 6th – Income Diversity
• 6th – Educational-Attainment Diversity
• 7th – Racial & Ethnic Diversity
• 4th – Linguistic Diversity
• 16th – Birthplace Diversity
• 25th – Industry Diversity*
• 9th – Generational Diversity
• 30th – Household-Type Diversity
• 6th – Household-Size Diversity
• 20th – Religious Diversity
*Includes civilian employed population aged 16 and older
