  1. I’m in San Diego and no one has ever asked for my ancestors’ nationality on any form; city, state or federal so I wonder how they arrived at these figures.

  2. My family , like many other Italians who worked for the Railroad, settled into Richmond Indiana and a book about our families and their stories has been published ,Buon Giorno, Richmond

  3. Yes but these numbers don`t say anything about which percentage of the population they represent,,big deal !

  4. the statistic is very interesting, and I believe in these numbers are included all the US born citizens of Italian ancestry, I see people asking for percentage, google a particular city population, compare numbers and then do the % yourself.

  5. Brooklyn, New York City, where our pizza and roast beef heroes are the best! L&B Spumoni Gardens and John’s Deli! Bensonhurst represent! 🇮🇹🇺🇸
