An Entity of Type: ethnic group, from Named Graph: http://dbpedia.org, within Data Space: dbpedia.org

American ancestry refers to people in the United States who self-identify their ancestral origin or descent as "American", rather than the more common officially recognized racial and ethnic groups that make up the bulk of the American people. The majority of these respondents are visibly White Americans, who either simply use this response as a political statement or are far removed from and no longer self-identify with their original ethnic ancestral origins. The latter response is attributed to a multitude of generational distance from ancestral lineages, and these tend be of English, Scotch-Irish, or other British ancestries, as demographers have observed that those ancestries tend to be seriously undercounted in U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey ancestry self-reporting esti

  • Bei der amerikanischen Volkszählung im Jahr 2000 gaben 7,2 % der Bevölkerung an, sie seien amerikanischer Abstammung (american ancestry). Mit dieser Selbstbezeichnung ist nicht eine indianische Abstammung gemeint, die als eigener Punkt im Fragebogen aufgeführt war; vielmehr beziehen diese US-Bürger damit ihre Herkunft meist auf die Kolonisten Amerikas, also die ersten europäischen Amerikaner, die mehrheitlich Emigranten von den Britischen Inseln waren. Ein Großteil ist also eigentlich den englischstämmigen Amerikanern zuzuordnen oder stammt aus den anderen Gebieten des Vereinigten Königreichs. Ein anderer häufiger Beweggrund ist die mangelnde Kenntnis über die eigene Abstammung. (de)

The majority of these respondents are visibly White Americans, who either simply use this response as a political statement or are far removed from and no longer self-identify with their original ethnic ancestral origins.

Although U.S. Census data indicates "American ancestry" is most commonly self-reported in the Deep South, the Upland South, and Appalachia, the vast majority of Americans and expatriates do not equate their nationality with ancestry, race or ethnicity, but with citizenship and allegiance.
