Africa is very light. Likely the most significant change in the coming century will be the darkening of the countries on the continent and the further lightening of the British Isles and central Europe.

* Figures for home countries include both citizens and non-citizens living in those countries but do not include expats, so what is precisely being presented is the number of expats as a percentage of the resident population of the home country, not the percentage of a country’s native population that is living in the US.

  1. It would be interesting to see how strongly this list correlates with their success in the US. The more selected immigrants should do better on average.

    Just eyeballing it that is clearly the case.
  2. What’s the point a sovereign Dominica if 40+% of their population resides in another polity? I’m not even being snarky, anyone know any Dominicans? (Or whatever the eponym is?). What’s the answer here?

    Plenty of baseball players are Dominicans, Sammy Sosa being one of them.

    The problem with the Dominican Republic is Dominicans, just as the problem with Haiti is Haitians.  The "answer" is something on the order of a zero-child policy and immigration from England, Germany, Sweden, Finland and Norway.  (The natives of the latter, not the "new " whatevers.)

    Dominica natives are English speaking blacks like Jamaicans, and called Dominicans, just like the mulatto Spanish speakers from the D.R.

    Guyanese are a mix of primarily black and Hindus the British imported, and a smaller bit of Carib Indian and white. Some are well mixed and others look full black or full hindu.

    They speak English, are often into rasta and dreadlocks, live around NYC and big cities in Canada, and don’t like white people.

  3. Of course, American Samoa and Puerto Rico do not show up. Their figures would be over 50%.

    But where is New Zealand?

    Also, one in 600 Chinese or Indians is still a lot more than one in five Barbadians.

    • Replies: @Audacious Epigone
    The Migration Policy institute that gathered the data didn't break New Zealand out from the broader Australia/New Zealand region. I thought about simply subtracting Australia from the figure, but it might include other smaller islands around New Zealand and thus overstate the New Zealand share so I just didn't include it. From other sources, it looks like it's a little under 0.5%--23k or so out of a New Zealand population of 5 million.

    Same place as it's always been (roughly speaking).

    KEK.

  5. Does “expat” include those who’ve become citizens in the US? Or only those who are living in the US as non-US citizens.

    • Replies: @Audacious Epigone
    Naturalized citizens as well. The criteria is simply that they were born in country X but are now living in the US.

    We understand your ironical intent, but it's their presence in ever greater numbers that generates xenophobic sentiments in the founding population.
  8. Thanks, great chart.

    Randomly importing 1/4 the population of dysfunctional crapholes is bad policy. Probably less than 1% of Americans realized this happened.

    TPS lets a president decide on a whim that nobody from a craphole country can be deported outside a criminal conviction, even if they entered illegally.

    It also lets them get work permits. If you ever wonder why so many places hire low IQ, slow-moving, sourpuss-face Somalis instead of smarter and more pleasant Mexicans, it’s because the Somali illegals can get near instant work permits from TPS, which the Mexicans can’t get.

    I think Trump’s biggest failure as President on immigration was failing to immediately suspend all TPS.

    Agree. This chart shows how clearly against US is interest current immigration. The only two of the top twenty sources that aren't obviously disasters for us are maybe Cuba and Myanmar, and that's only maybe. And yes, most Americans are blissfully unaware that we are a second home for every local craphole country, and now that process is globalizing so soon we'll be the second home to all the world's craphole countries, especially Africa's.

  11. I’m not aware of Dominicans and Guyanans causing too many problems (aside from the usual, of course). But 20% of Salvadoreans living in the U.S.? That’s just scary.
