Mapping Haitians in the US with Social Explorer by Sydney Beveridge
The earthquake destruction and rescue mobilization in Haiti are much in the news. Using Social Explorer, you can see the presence of Haitians in the US through maps and reports.
Haiti has a population of 9,035,536, according to the 2009 CIA World Fact Book. Haiti loses population each year to emmigration, and many of those people leaving end up in the US.
Data reports created using Social Explorer and 2008 American Community Survey data show that the US has 776,434 residents with Haitian ancestry. Additionally, 29% of Haitians in the US live in New York City and Miami.
