When you think of diversity, do you think of Texas?

According to a new study from WalletHub, the Lone Star State is the 2nd-most diverse state in the United States.

WalletHub compared the 50 states across six key diversity categories: socio-economic, cultural, economic, household, religious and political diversity.

Texas ranked number three in linguistic diversity, and number one overall for industry diversity--meaning we have a wide variety of industry from agriculture, construction, IT, arts, and so on.

We also ranked 4th overall in ethnic and racial diversity, which is a herald of things to come in the country.

The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that by 2044 the U.S. will no longer have a single ethnic majority, currently non-Hispanic whites, and will grow increasingly more diverse in the years to follow.

California came in at number one overall on the list. Hawaii, New Jersey and New York join Texas in the top five.
