| West Virginia has been named the least diverse state in the nation according to a WalletHub ranking.|
Diversity is a hot topic across the United States as the melting pot of America becomes more diverse and subsequently more aware of its diversity, or, in West Virginiaâs case, the lack thereof.
WV was one of four states that did not accept Afghanistan refugees fleeing that county, most being attached to the US governments military efforts.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the United States may not have a single ethnic minority by the year 2045.
However, not every state is equal when it comes to diversity, both racial and otherwise.
West Virginia is the most unhappy state in America according to WalletHub study.
WalletHub compared the 50 states across six key diversity categories to determine which states have diversified the most and which remain, relatively, the least diverse. According to these rankings, West Virginia claims the least diverse spot.
In addition to the overall 50th place ranking, West Virginia also claimed last place in two of the main categories, socioeconomic diversity and cultural diversity, as well as two subcategories, linguistic diversity and household size diversity.
West Virginia faired only slightly better in the income diversity and educational attainment diversity categories at 49th and the racial and ethnic diversity at 48th.
