According to an October report, Neighborhood Nexus is showing that Lilburn is the "most diverse neighborhood" in the 20-county region in and around Atlanta.
Specifically, the report considers the Lilburn area as northeast of the intersection Jimmy Carter Boulevard and Lawrenceville Highway. The racial/ethnic composition in that neighborhood, according to Neighborhood Nexus (based on Census data) is:
- 30.3% Hispanic
- 23.8% White
- 22.9% Black
- 20.5% Asian
- 2.5% "Other"
"This is an anomaly as over half of all neighborhoods in the region are largely homogeneous," according to Neighborhood Nexus, which provides tools and data to communities to help them be more engaged.
In the attached photo, the most diverse areas are seen in blue, and Gwinnett County comes out ahead of its neighbors.
In addition, the data indicates that the reason for the overall diversity is more about the presence of Asians and Hispanics than blacks and whites. In fact, the data suggests that blacks and whites are largely segregated.
