Analysis of Migratory Flow from Germany to the U.S
When viewing the history of immigrants from Germany to USA in the evidence of reports presented by US census. I follow a certain hierarchy by defining a chart of time line indicating the amount of immigrants entering USA from Germany. Keeping in consideration the chart I define push and pull factors for every decade. When the push and pull factors are highlighted in detail, I define the current status of the immigrants throughout history, whether they stayed in America or went back to their homeland. In the third phase, I define the immigrants and their common problems. In this phase, I further elaborate whether the German immigrants faced these problems in USA or not? In the fourth phase, I define the impact of culture of both countries in the German - American people and their contribution in the development of USA. In this phase, I further define the culture blend which has taken place in the course of history and the current status of German – American culture. In this phase, the location of German populated areas of USA is also highlighted. In conclusion, I define the current position of immigrants in USA, reasons of the decline of immigrants in USA and the overall impact immigrations has [produced in the lives of German – Americans and American society.

The emigration of Germans into the USA had begun in the year 1683 but due to lack of documentation in the early era the data is not available.
