American Ethnic Geography
A Cultural Geography of the United States and Canada
Map Gallery of Ethnic Groups in the United States
The 2000 Census provides the latest information about the many ethnic and ancestry groups in the United States. The following series of county-level choropleth maps, which reveals the distribution of many of these groups, draws on this resource. The maps are in PDF format and require the free Adobe Reader to view.
To access the data source for these maps, visit the Census Bureau's American FactFinder site. On this site, you can produce your own ethnic group maps or produce downloadable tables.
The Census Bureau has also prepared a series of briefs on the major groups, as well as overviews of ancestry and the foreign-born population. These are also in PDF format. Each includes national-level summaries of population totals and distributions, including both detailed tables and maps.
