A Data Affair Part Two: Swedes in America by Sydney Beveridge
After the past few weeks of the Tiger Woods affair, the golf star’s wife, Elin Nordegren may have become the most talked about Swede in America at the moment.

Social Explorer can show you–from the handful of foreign born Swedes in Nordegren’s neighborhood to the 49,724 across the US in 2000.
