Athens is doing better than most when it comes to diversity. That’s according to a recent study involving hundreds of U.S. cities. Jill Gonzalez is an analyst with the personal finance website WalletHub. She says the Classic City ranked in the top half of those considered.
“Out of all the cities we looked at, which was just over 500, Athens ranked 240th,” Gonzalez said. “So it came in above average. It ranked well when it comes to cultural and economic diversity. It didn’t do as well when it comes to religion and households.”
