West Point cadets holding U.S. and German flags march during the German-American Steuben Parade in New York. More than half of the 3,143 U.S. counties contain a plurality of people who describe themselves as German-American, according to a Bloomberg compilation of data from the Census Bureau’s 2010 American Community Survey. The number of German-Americans rose by 6 million during the last decade to 49.8 million, almost as much as the nation’s 50.5 million Hispanics.
