Nearly two-thirds of Americans (64%) say an increasing number of people from different races, ethnic groups and nationalities in the . makes the country a better place to live. Fewer (29%) think growing diversity in America does not make much difference, and just 5% think it makes the country a worse place to live.

In a 2006 study of jury decision making, social psychologist Samuel Sommers of Tufts University found that racially diverse groups exchanged a wider range of information during deliberation about a sexual assault case than all-white groups did. In collaboration with judges and jury administrators in a Michigan courtroom, Sommers conducted mock jury trials with a group of real selected jurors. Although the participants knew the mock jury was a court-sponsored experiment, they did not know that the true purpose of the research was to study the impact of racial diversity on jury decision making.
