A remarkable theme, clearly representing the concentration of people born outside the United States at the end of the 19th century to the general population around them. As expected, it is the urban areas of New England, the Great Lakes region and western states which have high concentrations, only small concentrations are seen in the south. Notice the Spanish concentrations along the border and former Spanish Catholic missionary areas.
