DALLAS (KDAF) — The U.S. is home to many different cultures and backgrounds; with that immigration reform is a prominent topic in political circles.

In the spirit of this conversation, WalletHub has done a study looking at “American’s current cultural profile”, where officials wanted to know which cities had the most and least ethnic diversity.

Officials compare more than 500 largest cities in the U.S. and compared them across a few metrics measuring ethnic diversity.

  • Wheeling, WV – 497
  • Laredo, TX – 498
  • Hialeah, FL – 499
  • Clarksburg, WV – 500
  • Parkersburg, WV – 501
