The least diverse place in every state

  • The least diverse place in every state

    Spending a significant amount of time in some of America’s most densely populated urban areas can be an invaluable experience—which brings with it countless opportunities and unique experiences, but it can also prove highly deceptive. While walking down a crowded street in New York or Chicago will undoubtedly expose one to countless faces of unique cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, this may mislead them into thinking that the city itself has transcended segregation or that smaller, more rural municipalities benefit from similar levels of diversity, each of which is far from the truth. In smaller communities especially, even in the year 2018, it is not uncommon to see entire towns and even cities populated primarily by people who look the same, hold similar ideals, and go about their lives with comparable levels of household income.

    Referencing a Niche study on 2018’s most diverse places in America, Stacker composed a list of the least diverse place in every single state, except for Hawaii, for which the data was not available. Each city and town included in the slideshow consists of a minimum of 1,000 residents and was ranked according to a number of key factors, the likes of which include race, age, and income variance. Read on to discover the least diverse place in each state.
