OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The U.S. today is a melting pot of cultures, thanks to increasing ethnic and racial diversification.

But, with immigration reform still a hot button issue, the U.S ethnic landscape may change again in the near future. WalletHub took a snapshot of America's current cultural profile, comparing more than 500 of the largest U.S. cities with three key indicators of ethnic diversity.

WalletHub examined every city based on ethnicity and race, language, and birthplace.

According to the study, Omaha ranks 220th overall and 52nd among large cities in terms of ethnic diversity. In the three key areas, Omaha ranks 244th in ethnoracial diversity, 206th in linguistic diversity, and 289th in birthplace diversity.

The study indicates that Jersey City, New Jersey is the most culturally diverse city in the United States. To see the full report, click here.
