200 years of immigration to the U.S., visualized

200 years of immigration to the U.S., visualized | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"Where have immigrants to the U.S. come from? Natalia Bronshtein, a professor and consultant who runs the blog Insightful Interaction, created this fascinating visualization of the number of immigrants to the U.S. since 1829 by country of origin.  The graph hints at tragic events in world history. The first influx of Irish occurred during the potato famine in 1845, while the massive influx of Russians in the first decade of the 20th Century was driven by anti-Semitic violence of the Russian pogroms (riots). Meanwhile in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, army conscription and the forced assimilation of minority groups drove people to the U.S. in the early 1900s.  Since WWII, Central and South America and Asia have replaced Europe as the largest source of immigrants to the U.S. Immigration shrunk to almost nothing as restrictions tightened during WWII, and then gradually expanded to reach its largest extent ever in the first decade of the 21st Century."

200 years of immigration to the U.S., visualized

Brian Stinson's curator insight, March 25, 1:24 PM

We've talked a lot about natural increase rate and how population fluctuates but we haven't discussed immigration to the U.S. Check out this interesting graph that shows where immigrants have come from for the past 200 years.

Olivier Tabary's curator insight, March 25, 4:20 PM

Quite impressive new graphic approach to cope with immigration flows in the USA

The Crew's curator insight, April 8, 2014 10:07 AM

Genocide makes me sick to me stomach knowing that some people don't like another persons beliefs or skin color or even their ethnicity so they try and entirely wipe out the entire group of people. Genocide needs to stop NOW. Think about all the innocent people dying over ignorance, It's completely corrupt. -Gavin MIllan
