Cuban ancestry map The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


Despite several long-standing Cuban-American communities such as Ybor City, FL, most Cuban immigration has occurred since 1970.

In the 2000 census, 1,241,685 people in the U.S. claimed Cuban ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 1.5 percent of those people said they were of Cuban ancestry.
