Most Racially Diverse Countries 2021

map placeholder

Race is defined as "a class or kind of people unified by shared interests, habits, or characteristics." If a country is racially-diverse, there are many different groups of people who share their own interests, habits, and characteristics. Racial diversity is different from cultural diversity, which looks at a country's language profile instead of race and ethnicity.

Racial diversity is growing in many nations. According to a recent survey conducted by Pew Research Center, approximately 69% of people surveyed across 27 nations said their respective nations have grown more diverse over the last 20 years. Close to half of survey respondents say that they favor a more racially diverse nation.

Even though racial diversity is still growing in some nations, other nations already have a very diverse population. Let's explore some of these diverse nations.

Trinidad and Tobago is very diverse. Groups in this country include East Indians, Afro-Trinidadians, and mixed races. Belize is another country with racial diversity, with its population made up of Mestizos, Kriols, Mayans, East Indians, and other races.

Guyana is also racially diverse. Races that reside in this nation include East Indians, blacks, mixed races, and Chinese. Other racially diverse countries throughout the world include:

In the United States, the most diverse states are California, Texas, Hawaii, New Jersey, and New York. Contemporary immigrants typically settle in California, New York, Texas, and New Jersey, contributing to their diversity.
