More Data Candy: This time,...

More Data Candy: This time, it's a map of ethnic-ancestry concentration within the United States, for 24 different nationalities. Who knew the French dominated the Northeast? Or that the Slovaks couldn't be bothered to leave the Pennsylvania-Ohio region? The data is only from the 1990 Census, but it's still fun. (Via David Galbraith)

Shouldn't there be a bloom of Canadian-red around LA? Y'know, 'cause of all the funny people.

Of course, the French dominate the NE--where do you think the name "Maine" came from?

So I guess only those Americans who came from European countries have an "ancestry". Of course we all know that Americans with Swiss ancestry vastly outnumber those that have, say, Japanese ancestry, right? That's why there's a "Swiss" category but not a "Japanese" one, right?

Fascinating map, but in addition to Crawford's complaint, I was also a bit flummuxed by the Canadians. I mean, would I count twice in that survey since my family's from Scotland via Prince Edward Island?

What's with the small cluster of Italians in Utah? (That is Utah, right? I'm not always so good on the square states.) They must be the saddest, lonliest wops on the planet.

Interesting that there's very little overlap between the Czechs and the Slovaks...

This little blue bit in the Southern CA is Solvang, no?

Excuse my use of the definite article above.


(How embarrassing!)

Si, es Solvang. And yeah, the data is sorely lacking. But it's still fun!
