In this week’s blog we would like to share a few interactive maps produced by The Business Insider that show immigration patterns in the U.S. and a few others that show the diversity of cultures and different languages spoken, other than English and Spanish. You may be surprised to find for example that the most common language spoken in California besides English, is not Spanish, but Tagalog. A recent report in The Washington Post shows that 20% of adults living in our nation’s capital can’t read or write. We’re also sharing a link to an interactive map that shows the States in the U.S. with the least and most educated population.
We hope you’ll find these maps informative and mind-opening as we did:
History of Immigration to the U.S.
The Most and Least Educated States in the U.S.
The Most Commonly Spoken Languages in the U.S. besides English and Spanish
The Origin of American Accents Across the U.S.
