Very interesting information, Xekoslav!
Here is a more detailed map of Ukrainians in the USA. This map represents Ukrainians reporting Ukrainian ancestry.January 23, 2017 at 9:27 pm #352890
The above map was prepared by CENTER FOR DEMOGRAPHIC AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC RESEARCH OFUKRAINIANS IN THE UNITED STATES. There are additional maps and information about Ukrainians in the USA on their website: http://www.inform-decisions.com/stat/index.php?r=site/page&view=showmaps&map=usa_ukrs.jpg
I do have a question about the Slavic USA demographic information. I wonder how many of the reported “Slavs,” especially Russians and Ukrainians, are actually ethnic Jews? After the break-up of the USSR in 1991, the USA funded a Soviet-Jewish Resettlement Program. The majority of the immigrant Jews did not practice or know their Jewish religion because of state atheism. They usually reported their ethnicity as Russian, Georgian, Ukrainian, etc. Something to consider with these statistics.January 23, 2017 at 9:46 pm #352888
@Karpivna, I don’t know of an official U.S. census that takes into account specifically Russian Jews and Ukrainian Jews from the general populations especially if the Jews also declare as Russian/Ukrainian. It’s my understanding that most Jews in the U.S. declare as Jewish ethnicity regardless of what country their ancestry hails from. Though Jewish is technically a religious identity it also has elements concerned with race, culture, and ethnicity for Jews in particular.
I live in PA currently and I can confirm that quite a large number of Ukrainians are present. Of Pittsburgh’s countless churches several are Ukrainian (including Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Byzantine-East Catholic). Ukrainians are constantly throwing festivals and parties to which all are invited. The culture is alive and well here and as vibrant as Croats and Polish here.January 23, 2017 at 9:55 pm #352886
I wouldn’t be out of line if said Poles, Ukrainians, and Croats have a special bond and relationship here in Pennsylvania. Our Slavic heritage does unite us and it’s not uncommon for organizations from all three groups to cooperate and create events together. The three of us are, by far, the largest representatives of the Slavic communities in all of Pennsylvania and our heritage goes back well over a century to the industrial revolution and turning Pennsylvania into a production powerhouse in Steel that dwarfed anything else in the world. All three of our communities played enormous roles in that and contributed to the AMERICAN identity of Pennsylvania too. It’s a point of pride for all three communitiesJanuary 23, 2017 at 10:20 pm #352884
