Distribution of Swedish Americans according to the US Census in 2000. There are more than 4.5 million Swedish descendants in the United States. Minnesota is by far the most Swedish-speaking, with 9.9% of the population having Swedish roots. North Dakota comes second with 5%.

In 1900, Chicago was "Sweden's second city", the city with the second highest number of Swedes after Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. The Andersonville district was home to many Nordic immigrants.

Many others settled in Minnesota but also Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska and Illinois. In the East, New England became the place for many industrial workers and Swedish centres developed in places like Jamestown, Providence and Boston.
