Mapping America

Browse the distribution of racial and ethnic groups from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey, based on samples from 2005 to 2009. Because these figures are based on samples, they are subject to a margin of error, particularly in places with a low population, and are best regarded as estimates.

At Mapping America you can find out where in the United States have more immigrants been settling in recent years? Why have they been moving to those areas? How does the interactive map of the New York metropolitan area reflect what demographers say about racial integration?
