Immigration to USA

Story being told

This interactive map visualizes the lawful migration of people to the US over the last two centuries. It shows that most of the immigration took place from Western Europe in the early 1800s, Eastern Europe in the late 1800s, and from the Americas in the early 1900s. The last few decades have seen major migration from the Asian countries. Each wave of migration coming from a particular country has a story behind it – usually escaping persecution (like Jews escaping Russia after the May Laws was enacted or the Cuban Revolution) or major economic troubles (like the Irish Potato Famine or the collapse of southern Italy after the Italian Unification).
