The Capitol City ranks number 18 on the overall list-- which includes midsize and small cities. Sacramento places high on the list for its ethnoracial and linguistic diversity. Jersey City, New Jersey tops the overall list as the most diverse city in the U.S.
In California, nearly 30 percent of the population was born in a foreign country making it the state with the highest concentration of foreign-born residents in the nation. In fact, seven of the top 10 diverse large cities ranked by WalletHub are in California.
