Silver Spring is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the United States, according to a report released today by the personal finance website WalletHub.
The report lists Silver Spring at #4, Germantown at #2, Gaithersburg at #3, and Rockville at #10.
“The U.S. today is a melting pot of cultures, thanks to increasing ethnic and racial diversification,” WalletHub said in the report. “If the trend continues, America will be more colorful than ever by 2045, at which point no single ethnic group will constitute the majority in the U.S. for the first time.”
For the report, WalletHub compared 501 of the most populated U.S. cities across three key metrics: 1) Ethnoracial Diversity, 2) Linguistic Diversity, and 3) Birthplace Diversity. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with 100 representing the most ethnic diversity.
“We then determined [the] city’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its “Ethnic Diversity Score” and used the resulting scores to rank-order our sample,” WalletHub said.
