Graphs of Cuban and Puerto Rican Immigration to the United States
The charts below measure the number of immigrants entering the United States from Cuba and Puerto Rico during the early twentieth century. Cuban immigration spikes during the earliest years of the twentieth century, when the U.S. repeatedly intervened in Cuba, and falls during the teens and twenties, as the Cuban sugar boom and the decline of the Tampa cigar industry helped stem out-migration. The data on Puerto Rican migration shows the vast inflow that began during the 1940s and reached its peak during the 1950s.
