Maryland's ranking on diversity among all 50 states

    I wasn't surprised to find out that Maryland was ranked 7th among states on diversity.  We have urban, suburban and rural areas that each have their distinctive demographics.  While Maryland is a relatively wealthy and highly educated state because of the Washington suburbs (in which Howard County should be included) we also have some struggling inner-city areas of Baltimore.  It should also not be surprising to learn that California is ranked number 1 in diversity and West Virginia is ranked last.  Diversity apparently in some cases leads to prosperity and the lack of diversity leaves a state poorer.  Here is the article on the rankings
