 Serbia demographics Population by Immigrants

 Serbs represented the largest ethnic group within the former country of Yugoslavia, and as the dominant regional group, they were less likely to migrate than Croatians (see Croatian immigration) or Slovenes (see Slovenian immigration). According to the U.S. census of 2000 and the Canadian census of 2001, 140,337 Americans and 55,540 Canadians claimed Serbian descent. These figures were low, as a large percentage of those who claimed Yugoslav ancestry (328,547 Americans and 65,505 Canadians) were undoubtedly of Serbian origin. Estimates by various ethnic organizations place the number of Serbian Americans at more than 350,000 and Serbian Canadians at more than 150,000. Major centers of Serb settlement in the United States included Chicago, Illinois; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and San Francisco and Los Angeles in California. The largest Serbian concentrations in Canada were in Ontario.
