    Germans in Philadelphia

    Are there Germans in Philadelphia? Because I might move there in a few months.

    Re: Germans in Philadelphia

    Here's a map posted earlier by Theudanaz showing the ethnicity of Americans as of the 2000 census:
    Attachment 46421

    Also according to the 2000 census, 8525 people over the age of 5 spoke German in the home in Philadelphia County; 155 spoke Pennsylvania Dutch in the same county. Not a big percentage of the population, but if you know and associate with all eight thousand, you'll feel surrounded by German folk, I'd imagine.

    For any interested, here's a link to the page where you can get information on language use in the U.S. according to the 2000 census:
    http://www.census.gov/population/www.../lang_use.html

    The data I have cited above come from their Excel spreadsheet entitled "Detailed Language Spoken at Home for the Population 5 Years and Over."

    You don't want to live in Philadelpha. Western PA is good though.
