The percentage of Iraqi Americans varies widely by state, ranging from 0.37% in Michigan to no reported individuals in Delaware, Mississippi, and Wyoming. The states with the highest percentages of Iraqi Americans are Nebraska (0.14%), followed by Maine (0.04%) and Iowa (0.03%). Interestingly, some states with larger populations, such as Texas and California, have lower percentages of Iraqi Americans than smaller states like Maine and Iowa. These variations in the distribution of Iraqi Americans across different states highlight the influence of factors such as employment opportunities, immigration patterns, and social networks on the geographical concentration of immigrant communities.
