I think that would be a very interesting thread! You should do it!

63.5 percent White;
23.4 percent Asian
9.2 percent African American;
5.2 percent Hispanic

Duluth overtly does seem it be a lot more diverse. Duluth is minority majority or no majority with 3 groups above 20%, and 4 above 10%

While John Creek does have a majority group white at 63% and only 1 other group above 10%.

Either the recent estimates for demographics change drastically since 2010, or either they are using a weird metric. Maybe there throwing some weird monkey ranch like age, income or something. cause base ethnicity, religion, Nationality and etc. It's very off. I wouldn't say "WalletHub" is using the actual definition of diversity, they using some weird metric and this publication is misleading. but I don't know.
Wallethub’s criteria for assessing diversity can most charitably be defined as pointless. They weight “Industry Diversity” as the second highest criterion behind “Household Income Diversity” which is the most heavily weighted. Wallethub’s business model consists of churning out idiotic listicles to drive traffic to their site.

Johns Creek's Asian population seems quite diverse, though. While Metro Atlanta's Asian population seems to be plurality Korean, John's Creek's Asian population is plurality Indian, and has a sizeable Chinese population. Whereas elsewhere in Atlanta there are hardly any Chinese among the Asian population.

There’s a pretty large SE Asian presence in Clayton and Henry.

Point well taken, though there is definitely significant Chinese population in Duluth, Suwanee, and Alpharetta in addition to Johns Creek.
