Fort Bend Ranks as Most Diverse in America

Fort Bend Ranks as Most Diverse in America

Fort Bend has been called the most ethnically diverse county in America, with a population that comes close to an equal distribution of the nation's four major ethnic groups. But more importantly, it is known as a community that welcomes everyone.


In 2018, Niche Rankings listed Fort Bend County as the 3rd most diverse counties in the United States and the number 1 in Texas. This ranking is a part of a study that provides a comprehensive assessment of the overall diversity of an area at the county level. The grade takes into account key indicators of a location’s demographic composition, including the levels of variance in race, age, and income levels among residents, in an attempt to measure an area’s extent of diversity.

Fort Bend has been recognized year after year from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics for being the most ethnically diverse county in the Houston metropolitan area. It’s also known for being one of the fastest growing counties in the Nation along with the No. 1 in Texas for purchasing power.

It’s obvious that residents in Fort Bend County enjoy the benefit of a community diverse in its cultures, cities, and lifestyles. From metropolitan living in the lofts and retail mixed use communities of Sugar Land to the amenity rich master planned communities in Missouri City to the quiet charm of Fulshear, to the history rich communities of Richmond and Rosenberg, Fort Bend County is a mix of communities, cosmopolitan to rural, offering residents options and opportunity.

Excellent education systems, low crime rate, and some of the highest incomes in the state, Fort Bend communities, in their diversity of style and offerings, derive the benefits of an ever-growing business economy. Those who call Fort Bend home may catch a baseball game at Constellation Field, go bird watching at Seabourne Creek Nature Park, attend a concert in the Stafford Center, or watch a polo match on the fields in Simonton. There is something for everyone in Fort Bend.
