Study Ranks Arlington

The City of Arlington was named 2017's 15th Most Culturally Diverse Large City by a recent study from the leading personal finance outlet

WalletHub's data team took a snapshot of America's current cultural profile - comparing 501 of the largest U.S. cities across three key indicators of cultural diversity - to determine the most multifaceted of the bunch. The analysts examined each city based on ethnicity and race, language and birthplace.

Here's how Arlington shaped up, according to the study:

Cultural Diversity
