Another Study Confirms It: Irving is Really, Really Diverse

A new study has named Irving as the second-most increasingly diverse city in the U.S.

The study, by Preply, evaluated 300 U.S. cities across four factors: racial distribution, the percentage of people who identify as multiracial, the percentage of people who speak more than one language and the percentage of foreign-born residents.

Irving came in at No. 2, just behind High Point, N.C., based on U.S. Census figures from 2010 and 2019.

Roughly 38% of Irving residents are foreign-born, a 5% increase since 2010, according to Preply, which is an online language learning platform. And 35% of Irving residents are bilingual, up from 25% in 2010.

This is the second study in eight months to offer nearly identical results. Personal finance website Finder named Irving the second-most culturally diverse city in September last year. That study examined sex, race, ethnicity, age, language, place of birth and citizenship of residents.
