This digital map charts out the U.S. Census’ Diversity Index rating per state. The diversity index compares the degree of racial and ethnic variability in a population. The greater the number the more diverse the population is.

The following two digital maps show states where the Hispanic and Black population counts came in below the Census Bureau’s own estimates. These maps are current as of August 2021.
