Comparisons of their Demography.

Hypothesis and comparisons. 

Geographic situation:

We can see that Native Americans of United States, are not really grouped in one place. They are scattered in the west part of United States. It is because of the politic of this period (1830 and Before) when the Americans deported Native Americans in the West part of United States. Many of them were deported in reservations.

Then, we can see that the African Americans are more grouped. They are situated in the east part of United States. They are situated in the south east and in the north east.
We know that between 1910 and 1930, there was a great migration of African Americans: it was the migration of thousands of African-Americans from the South to the North. African Americans were looking to escape the problems of racism in the South and felt they could seek out better jobs and an overall better life in the North. It is estimated that over 1 million African-Americans participated in this mass movement.
The Great Migration created the first large, urban black communities in the North. The North saw its black population rise about 20 percent between 1910 and 1930. Cities such as Chicago, Detroit, New York, and Cleveland saw some of the biggest increases.

 

Global Population:

In current demographics, according to 2005 U.S. Census figures, some 39.9 million African Americans live in the United States, comprising 13.8 percent of the total population.

In 2006, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that about 1.0 percent of the U.S. population was Native Americans.


Organisation:

We can think that the African Americans didn't have a specific organization, maybe they mad sorts of community groups in different periods.

The Native Americans are organised in tribes for most of them. We can think that they are following the way of their ancestors. There are 562 tribes which are federally recognised.

 


Places:

We know that the African Americans are more situated in the metropolitan areas: (Around 58% of them). We think it is because of their needs: they wanted jobs and there were many jobs in metropolitan areas.

We can think that the Native Americans are more scattered. But Many of them are on the reservations territories so in the city and in the country. For most of them, they didn't have the choice.


Income:

The African Americans had incomes below the poverty level of $12,675 for a family of four.
Their median income in 1989 was of $579 by week.

25% of Native Americans are below poverty and with an average median income of just over $30,000.

It is difficult to make hypothesis on this subject, because we have not a lot of information on it.
