Swiss ancestry, ethnic data, United States
Over one million Americans claim Swiss ancestry according to the 1990 ethnic data recently released by the U.S. Census. While this is up 6.5% over the 1980 figure, the Swiss remain a very small ethnic group, accounting for less than half a percent of total U.S. population. Nevertheless, the new data makes the 1990 census the first in which the Swiss pass the million population mark.
