dbo:abstract
  • Nigerian Americans (Igbo: Ṇ́dị́ Naìjíríyà n'Emerịkà; Hausa: Yan Najeriyar asalin Amurka;Yoruba: Àwọn ọmọ Nàìjíríà Amẹ́ríkà) are an ethnic group of Americans who are of Nigerian ancestry. The number of Nigerian immigrants residing in the United States is rapidly growing, expanding from a small 1980 population of 25,000. The 2019 American Community Survey (ACS) estimates that 461,695 U.S. residents report Nigerian ancestry. The 2019 ACS also estimates that around 85% are foreign-born, with 392,811 U.S. residents reporting Nigeria as their birthplace. Similar to its status as the most populous country in Africa, Nigeria is also the African country with the most migrants to the United States, as of 2013. In a study which was carried out by consumer genetics company 23andMe which involved the DNA of 50,281 people of African descent in the United States, Latin America and western Europe, It was revealed that Nigeria had the most common ancestry within the US, the French Caribbean, and the British Caribbean. Nigerian-Americans, like British Nigerians, predominately originate from southern Nigeria, as opposed to the Islamic northern half of the country. (en)
  • Les Nigériano-Américains (ou Nigerian Americans en anglais) sont les Américains d'origine nigériane. Selon l'American Community Survey, pour la période 2011-2015, 311 102 personnes se déclarent d'ascendance nigériane. Ils sont particulièrement présents dans les États du Maryland, de New York, du Texas, de Géorgie et dans des grandes villes comme Los Angeles ou Detroit. (fr)
  • Nigerianos americanos (em ibo: Onye Naìjíríyà na Amerika; em haúça: Yan Najeriyar asalin Amurka; em iorubá: Àwọn ọmọ Nàìjíríà Amẹ́ríkà) são um grupo étnico constituído por americanos descendentes de nigerianos. Segundo American Community Survey (2019), estima-se que 461 695 residentes nos Estados Unidos tenham ascendência nigeriana. Ainda conforme estimativa da ACS (2019), 392 811 residentes nos EUA nasceram na Nigéria. Embora nativos da área que hoje corresponde à Nigéria tenham sido trazidos como escravos para as Américas, por meio do comércio transatlântico de escravos, os residentes nos EUA que declaram ascendência nigeriana são, geralmente, imigrantes recentes (ou seja, ingressaram nos Estados Unidos depois de 1960, quando a Nigéria se tornou independente) e seus descendentes. Da mesma forma que é o mais populoso país da África, a Nigéria foi também o país africano que enviou o maior número de migrantes para os Estados Unidos, em 2013. (pt)
