    I'm just curious what it means to be "American." I refuse to believe the authors think most people in Wisconsin were born in Germany. I'm sure they mean "Of German descent." So the counties in which the plurality were "American," where did their ancestors come from? The county I now live in is one of the yellow ones. My ancestors come from England, Ireland and Scotland. I am, as a German would say, "eine Mischung," so maybe that is what is considered an American.

    I wondered about that, too. It seemed a bit odd to me, as in what metric were they using for determining "American"? Not Native American. Would like to know more about that.

    Any census experts out there?
