“From 1820 to 2013, 79 million people obtained lawful permanent resident status in the United States. This map visualizes all of them based on their prior country of residence. The brightness of a country corresponds to its total migration to the U.S. at the given time.”

1 dot = 10,000 people

As a percentage of total US population, today’s immigration rates are far below those of the 1920s and before.
