We’ve been digging around a bunch of data sources while creating Zippia the past several months and we stumbled upon some pretty good interesting data from the Census Bureau. In particular, the data on race allows us to measure the level of diversity in each state and how it has changed over the past 40 years.

So with all the talk about diversity in the work place, we thought it would be interesting to point at the states where achieving that diversity is possible — the states with the most diverse populous.

We found several surprising trends in the data that we’ll share below.
