I assume there's more first and second-generation Europeans in Australia and Canada, which the other countries seem to lack.

The European-descended population in New Zealand seems comparable to the United Kingdom.

Despite being ethnically diverse, the European-descended population in the United States has converged into one group (i.e. White Americans). The European cultures and languages have been lost throughout the generations.

Does Australia collect racial data? The Census Bureau in the U.S. and StatCan does as well. Couldn't find anything for Australia, however.
No it does not, for example African Americans would be classified as American in the Australian census.

Yep. Not sure being top of that list is necessarily a good thing, though... At least it makes Australia look like a utopian, highly successful melting pot society.

Possible forms of diversity (though please don't limit yourself to these if there are other forms missing)

Racial Diversity--US
Ethnic Diversity--US or Canada
Tribal Diversity--US
Ancestral Diversity--US
Lingustic Diversity--US
Political/Ideological Diversity--US
Religious Diversity--US
Socioeconomic Diversity--US
Culinary Diversity--US
Cultural Diversity--US
Artistic Diversity--US or UK
Indigenous Diversity--US
Regional Diversity--US

Other than ethnic and artistic diversity, is any of it debatable?

Yes. For example, for linguistic diversity more Australians than Americans speak a language other than English at home, and a far higher proportion were born into, and so have direct attachment to, a foreign culture.

The indigenous one is also certainly debatable. Most foreigners seem totally unaware that Australian Aboriginals are divided into over two hundred different cultural groups, speaking just a many languages. Unfortunately Australia is also a major source of extinct of nearly extinct languages.

The numbers are almost exactly the same for both nations. I did not realize how large the foreign born population of Australia was though. Thank you for inspiring me to look.

The US. It has diversity within diversity. For example in the South you can find African Americans throughout the region, Cubans in Florida, Cajuns in Louisiana, Scotch-Irish throughout the region though mostly in Appalachia. In the Northeast you got Jews, Italians, Puerto Ricans, Portuguese, Irish and other groups. There's just so much.

Nigeria, hands down. After that, probably South Africa.
