The United States exhibits a rich human geography, due to its scale, its varied climates and landscapes, and especially its complex immigration history. The result is a dynamic set of racial, cultural, and ethnic groups, as well as a number of discernible cultural regions. These patterns have not diminished over time, but rather persist as part of the country's cultural mosaic. This is evident in many national data sets, in particular those from the U.S. Census Bureau. The maps in the collection below draw from these national data and reveal much about the settlement and subsequent migrations of many groups in the United States These maps also show the socio-economic picture for much of the country, at least through the lens of topics like education, poverty, life expectancy, and household size. Developed primarily for use in my American Ethnic Geography course (GEO 200), this map collection demonstrates that diversity and regionalism are alive and well in the United States.
