Norwegian population settlement in the United States (and Canada) at the turn of the century.

Norwegian Population Settlement in the U.S.

From the "Locating Lutherans" project. Originally from (I believe), Olaf Morgan Norlie's "History of the Norwegian People in America Paperback" (1925).

On the subject of historic Scandinavian migration and its effect in Scandinavia, I highly recommend a recent job market paper by my colleagues Mounir Karadja and Erik Prawitz, "Exit, Voice and Political Change: Evidence from Swedish Mass Migration to the United States".
