Research: Houston the most diverse city in the U.S.

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Houston is now the most ethnically diverse city in the country.

Researchers at Rice University analyzed census data and concluded the Bayou City is home to the most ethnic groups.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Missouri City and Pearland are even more diverse than Houston and other suburbs aren't far behind. Fort Bend County is the most diverse and residential segregation has dropped over the past 20 years, especially in the suburbs.

In our area, you can find the widest range of racial and ethnic groups in Missouri City, Pearland, Houston, Pasadena and Sugar Land.
