ehh I would say Dallas is the most diverse ON THAT LIST, Chicago and NYC as runner-ups

But overall... I think Jersey City is the most diverse big city in the country
Jersey City,

Black- 28%
Hispanic- 28%
White- 24%
Other race- 15%
Asian- 15%
Two or more races- 6%

Washington doesn't have 8 million without Baltimore and yet Baltimore gets its own spot while DC keeps Baltimore's population too? uh what?

plus, Baltimore's metro is not 822k and i don't think its hispanic population is 2 percent. put that 2 where it's supposed to be, and you have 2,822,071 as the metro population and you didn't include Baltimore's Hispanic population at all

The stats seem to be based on the city population, while the population listed is the metro. That is the case with Denver, anyway.

Hasn't this been done before (he asked, knowing perfectly well that it's been covered more than once)?

That's exactly what it looks like. The OP didn't explain it very well.

Oh, my bad. Baltimore's metro said 822,000, that was a typo, it should have read 8 million. Thanks for pointing that out.

Correct. Sorry, I should have made that more clear on the description.
