(NEWS) Two NJ counties now rank among nation’s most diverse

New data from the U.S. census paints an even more detailed picture of just how diverse New Jersey is. Already a state with one of the most racially and ethnically varied populations in the nation, New Jersey has some of the most diverse counties in America. Middlesex County ranks 20th and Essex 21st as the most diverse in the country, according to data released Wednesday by the U.S. Census Bureau. Its America Counts state reports include diversity data for each county, which was not part of the bureau’s release two weeks ago of population counts, race and ethnicity, voting age and housing stock from the 2020 census.
