Hungarians in America can trace their roots to several movements. Political refugees came here in the mid-19th and the mid-20th centuries. Others were driven by economic pressures in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

In the 2000 census, 1,398,702 people in the U.S. claimed Hungarian 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 5 percent of those people said they were of Hungarian ancestry.
