Here's a map of all 3000 counties in the United States, color coordinated by their dominant ethnicity. (Click to zoom in on it.)

Not that I have anything against it, but how does one of an ancestry of "American" that isn't "American Indian"? Odd that it is in the more "redneck" areas of the US as well. Not that I can say much about my ancestry, as I'm pretty much a mutt.

Somehow, I figured there'd be more black people in Cali...must be one of those Midwestern misconceptions...

Does anyone know what "American" means in this graph? I assume this is self-reported data.

This info came from the 2000 US Census. The data on acestry was self reported. Wikipedia interprets "American" as whites who did not identify with any other ancestry. It also speculates that English ancestry may be under reported. Based on my experiences, many who live in areas reporting "American" ancestry came from an English, Scotch, Irish background.
