Ancestry

In the 2015 American Community Survey, 2,979,533 residents of Ohio stated that they had German ancestors. With a share of 25.7 percent of the total population, people of German origin represent the largest population group in the state. They are followed by a long way behind the Irish (13.4 percent) and English-born (8.2 percent) groups.

The ethnic group of German origin has a high proportion of the population, especially in the north-west, and has significantly shaped the culture of Ohio. For example, a district of the capital is called Columbus German Village.

Residents with American or British roots are primarily found in the south and central parts of the state. In Cleveland and Cincinnati, large proportions of the population are African American. In addition, many Hispanics live in Cleveland and especially in Toledo.
