A mesmerizing and very colorful animation of the migration flows into the US has been created, showing where in the world people arrived from over the past two centuries.
Metrocosm used immigration statistics from the Department of Homeland Security to show where a total of 79 million people moved from between 1820 and 2013 to obtain “lawful permanent resident status” in the US.

With each dot signifying 10,000 people, it’s easy to see which countries led the way in migration to America. This data also offers insight into the histories of those population contributing countries, as their residents fled famine, social unrest and conflict for a new life in America.
It’s worth noting that most illegal immigration is not included in the animation.
From 1820 to around 1860, a period which would have coincided with the Irish famine, Ireland tops the list as the country sending most migrants to America. UK residents are the second highest migration group on the list.

In the following period, the animation shows a massive influx of Italians, which would have coincided with Italian unification following the collapse of southern Italy. The number of Russians migrating follows closely behind.

From around 1920, an influx of Canadians led the charge, with Mexico not far behind.
Meanwhile, during the rise of Hitler and in the post-World War Two period, German migrants made the move.
Mexicans immigrants outnumber all other countries from around 1960 through to 2013.
There is also a marked increase in the influx of Cubans from 1970, coinciding with the Cuban Revolution.

From 1980 onwards, there is a continued increase of immigrants from Philippines, “Other Asia” and China.

2 Centuries of U.S. Immigration
From 1920 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.

I am an NYC-based entrepreneur (my newest project: FOIA Mapper), formerly a trader/modeler of financial and insurance risk.
I'm fascinated by data visualization and the ways that data is transforming our understanding of the world. I spend a lot of time with my face buried in Excel, and when I find something interesting I write about it here and as a contributor for the Huffington Post.

Immigration data: Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Immigration Statistics (download: full report, data in Excel format). The data used for the map is “persons obtaining lawful permanent resident status,” which does not include illegal immigration or, as pointed out by @artsyTrish, people brought to the U.S. as slaves (“forced immigration”).

From 1820 to 2013, 79 million people obtained lawful permanent resident status in the United States. The interactive map below 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.

Over time, the sources of immigration trace a clear path across the world.
Through most of the 1800’s, immigration came predominantly from Western Europe (Ireland, Germany, the U.K.). Toward the end of the century, countries further east in Europe (Italy, Russia, Hungary) took over as the largest source of migration. Beginning in the early 1900’s, most immigrants arrived from the Americas (Canada, Mexico). And the last few decades have seen a rise in migration from Asia. The same trends are clear looking at the history of New York City’s foreign born population.
Here are the largest immigration “waves” charted over time, showing the progression.

While it may seem that immigration over the last few decades has been higher than ever before, the picture looks very different when viewed relative to the size of the U.S. population.
Here is the same chart, with the immigration shown as a percentage of the U.S. population.

What I think is particularly interesting about immigration to the U.S. is that each “wave” coming in from a particular country has a story behind it — usually escaping persecution (e.g. Jews escaping Russia after May Day laws were enacted, the Cuban Revolution) or major economic troubles (e.g. the Irish Potato Famine, the collapse of southern Italy after the Italian Unification).
If you’d like to read more about what caused each of these groups to come to the U.S., this graphic summarizes some of the major events.

Immigration animation shows different nationalities that arrived in America since 1820..
Watch two centuries of immigration to the US: Incredible animation shows the populations that have arrived in America since 1820
One dot represents 10,000 people and different colours are used for different countries
Movement to the US starts in Western Europe with Ireland, Germany, and the UK, leading the way
The source then moves east to Italy, Russia, and Hungary before shifting to the Americas and finally to Asia
Max Galka from New York created the map in an effort to remind everyone that 'the US is a nation of immigrants
With the presidential contest heating up, immigration remains a hot topic.
Now, in an effort to remind everyone that 'the US is a nation of immigrants', Metrocosm's Max Galka has created a map of population movement over two centuries.
The colourful animation reveals the countries that sent the most people to the US since 1820, with one dot representing 10,000 people.
As a reminder that most of the American population came from somewhere else, Metrocosm's Max Galka has created a map that shows two centuries of immigration to the US
The map uses different colours for each country as well as brightness to illustrate the total migration at any given time, shown by the timeline at the bottom.
'From 1820 to 2013, 79 million people obtained lawful permanent resident status in the United States,' New York-based Galka writes in his blog.
'The interactive map visualizes all of them based on their prior country of residence.
'Through time, the immigration sources trace a clear path through the world.
'Starting in Western Europe with Ireland, Germany, and the UK, the source moves east to Italy, Russia, and Hungary before shifting to the Americas and finally to Asia.
'The same trend is clear looking at the history of New York City's foreign born population.
Galka points out that the map makes it look like immigration has been particularly high over the past few decades.
But he says 'the picture looks very different when viewed relative to the size of the U.S. population.'
Immigration has fluctuated based on government policy. For example, between 1900 and 1910, total immigration averaged about 900,000 each year.
But between 1950 and 1960, annual immigration was much lower, at around 250,000.
The latest animation compliments a separate map published by the US Census Bureau that shows the ancestry of all 318 million people who call the melting pot of America home.
By far the largest ancestral group, stretching from coast to coast across 21st century America is German.
The peak immigration for Germans was in the mid-19th century as thousands were driven from their homes by unemployment and unrest.
Another group who joined the great story of the United States were the Irish and the great famine of the 1840s sparked mass migration from Ireland.
It is estimated that between 1820 and 1920, 4.5 million Irish moved to the United States and settled in the large cities like New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago and San Francisco.
The next largest grouping of people in the US by ancestry are those who claim to be English-American.
Predominantly found in the Northwest and West, the number of people directly claiming to be English-American has dropped by 20 million since the 1980 U.S. Census because more citizens have started to identify themselves as American.
Not everyone came to America by choice.
Slavery in America began when the first African slaves were brought to the North American colony of Jamestown in 1619 and was practiced through the 17th and 18th centuries.
