DORCHESTER (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – The Boston neighborhood of Dorchester has been ranked as one of the most diverse in the nation.
Using census data, the online real estate firm Trulia lists Dorchester as the eighth most diverse neighborhood in the country. San Jose, Calif., came in as the most diverse city in the nation.
The firm gets its rankings by measuring the diversity of a metro area's or zip code's population in its largest racial or ethnic group.
The smaller the share of the largest group, the more diverse the neighborhood is.
