The Pew Charitable Trusts recently came out with its 2013 State of the City report for Philadelphia. The report has a ton of interesting data about the city, and we'll highlight more of it this week.

For now, in light of the controversy this month over PhillyMag's "Being White in Philly" cover story, here are the eight most diverse zip codes in the city, according to the Pew report.

These are the eight neighborhoods in which no racial group makes up more than 50 percent of the zip code's population (the zip codes are listed here in numeric order):

1. West Philadelphia/University City (19104): 36 percent white, 41 percent black, 4 percent Hispanic, 16 percent Asian

2. Olney (19120): 8 percent white, 49 percent black, 28 percent Hispanic, 13 percent Asian

3. North Philadelphia-Yorktown (19122): 28 percent white, 38 percent black, 28 percent Hispanic, 3 percent Asian

4. Northern Liberties/Spring Garden (19123): 41 percent white, 42 percent black, 9 percent Hispanic, 5 percent Asian

5. Northeast-Frankford (19124): 21 percent white, 39 percent black, 33 percent Hispanic, 5 percent Asian

6. Port Richmond (19134): 36 percent white, 17 percent black, 44 percent Hispanic, 2 percent Asian

7. South Philadelphia-West (19145): 44 percent white, 36 percent black, 4 percent Hispanic, 14 percent Asian

8. Northeast-Mayfair/Oxford Circle (19149): 44 percent white, 22 percent black, 17 percent Hispanic, 13 percent Asian
