By 2050, the United States is projected to become what is called a plurality nation — one without a racial or ethnic majority. For many cities large and small, this is already a reality where the population is extraordinarily diverse. WalletHub analyzed the data for 313 American cities in four major areas of diversity — social class, ethno-racial, economic and household — to determine the most and least diverse. The most diverse U.S. city is Gaithersburg, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC in Montgomery County, with a population of about 66,000. There is no majority race or ethnic group here, and more than 80 different languages are spoken as a first language at Gaithersburg High School. Along with Gaithersburg, two other cities in Montgomery County, Maryland — Silver Spring and Germantown — are in the top five of the most diverse cities in the country. The least diverse city is Detroit, Michigan.
