Composition of the foreign-born population : 1890
- Composition of the foreign-born population : 1890
America Transformed: According to the 1890 census, almost 15 percent of the country's total population consisted of foreign-born immigrants, and an additional 33 percent were children of immigrants. These numbers reflect the significance of immigration to the country's population growth, especially during the late 19th century. This colorful graphic, innovative for its time, consists of pie diagrams for each state showing the percentage of foreign-born people from Canada, China, and twelve European countries. Massachusetts' pie diagram indicates that the largest group came from Ireland, while Canada held second position. In Illinois, Germans formed the largest group, while Irish and Scandinavians composed the second and third largest groups.
