ARAB ANCESTRY

In the 2000 census, 1.2 million people claimed Arab ancestry. The largest group was Lebanese, followed by Syrian and Egyptian.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 1 percent of those people said they were of Arab ancestry.

The links at left lead to information on other races and ethnicities.
