Kudos to these Texas cities for ranking among America's most diverse

The results of a new study indicate that five Lone Star cities — three in North Texas, specifically — are among the 20 most diverse places in America. According to WalletHub, Dallas ranks No. 16 for overall diversity. Houston is tops in Texas, at No. 7, followed by Fort Worth at No. 12, Arlington at No. 14 and Austin at No. 20. 

To identify the most diverse cities in America, the personal financial site analyzed 230 cities across four major diversity categories: economic class, ethno-racial and linguistic, economic, and household.

Other key findings: Dallas ranks No. 3 for highest educational diversity, while Plano (at No. 56 overall) takes the No. 4 spot for highest income diversity.

All of the top five cities are located in California: Los Angeles (No. 1), Long Beach (No. 2), San Diego (No. 3), Anaheim (tied for No. 3) and Sacramento (No. 5).
