Two Florida Cities Mentioned in List of Cities Where Diversity is Increasing the Most

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau released in 2020, the United States has become more diverse than ever before.

Nicholas Jones, the director and senior advisor of race and ethnic research and outreach in the U.S. Census Bureau's Population Division, told CNN:

"Our analysis of the 2020 Census results show that the U.S. population is much more multiracial, and more racially and ethnically diverse than what we measured in the past."

Cities Where Diversity Is Increasing the Most: As the United States becomes more diverse overall, the website Preply wanted to know which cities were seeing the most increasing diversity. So the site used data from the U.S. Census Bureau from 2010 and 2019 across 300 of the largest cities. Specifically, analysts looked at four key areas including:

  1. How the population was divided amongst different racial groups.
  2. The percentage of the population that identified with two or more race groups.
  3. The percentage of the population that spoke one or more languages other than English.
  4. The percentage of the population that was not born in the United States.

The site gave points for each of these categories from 2010 and 2019. The difference between the two years was used to determine which cities became the most increasingly diverse. The result was a list of the top five cities that have increased diversity the most.

How Did Florida Fare?

Florida had two cities mentioned in the list of five cities with increasing diversity, including Davie, which came in 4th, and Clearwater, which came in 5th.

Here is the complete list of the most increasingly diverse cities.

  • 1. High Point, North Carolina
  • 2. Irving, Texas
  • 3. Kent, Washington
  • 4. Davie, Florida
  • 5. Clearwater, Florida

The site also listed five cities where diversity was increasingly at the slowest rate. Those cities were:

  • 1. El Paso, Texas
  • 2. Oxnard, California
  • 3. Lancaster, California
