Top 10 Areas In The Usa With The Most Nigerian Population. by osisi*: 1:30am On Dec 11, 2008
The USA has the world's third largest Nigerian community, only behind Nigeria itself and the United Kingdom, where up to 3 million Nigerians reside. Like other successful immigrant populations in the United States, Nigerian Americans reside in virtually all 50 states. Sizeable communities are concentrated in the following areas (in order of size):

1. Maryland: Prince Georges, Baltimore (Not Including Baltimore City, the 4th largest Nigerian American community), Howard and Montgomery counties.

2. New York: All boroughs of New York City, the largest Nigerian American community, plus Nassau and Westchester counties.

3. Texas: Harris (esp. the city of Houston), Fort Bend, Tarrant, Dallas, and Travis counties.

4. Georgia: Cobb, Dekalb, Fulton, Gwinnett counties, with Atlanta is the 5th largest Nigerian-American community.

5. New Jersey: Hudson, Essex, Bergen, Union and Middlesex counties, with a large porportion of Nigerians live in Newark.

6. Illinois: Cook County (esp. the city of Chicago).

7. California: Los Angeles (city and county),Fresno, San Bernardino, Orange, San Diego, Sacramento and Solano counties; and the San Francisco Bay Area: Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

8. Ohio: Hamilton and Montgomery counties, with Columbus being the 3rd largest Nigerian-American community.

9. Rhode Island: Providence County (with significant numbers of Nigerian Americans in Providence) and Pawtucket.

10. Virginia: Fairfax, Prince William and Loudoun Counties, but not including Washington DC, it has the 2nd largest Nigerian American community.

I think that there are more Nigerians in the US than they are in the UK. We have just over 1million black people in the UK if the census is to be believed.

My aunt who lived in Silver Spring until her demise recently was totally against moving to PG county, amidst the affordable real estate in the area. While PG county was mentioned in a positive light in Ebony magazine a while back, that same month or thereabout, the county received negative publicity from Essence magazine with regards to domestic violence.

Ndipe, i actually read that copy. i was shocked. . . because those involved in the domestic violence in PG are rich (Ebony mag). who knows they are nigerians  grin you know most don't have anger management and they are aggressive when it's money issue  grin

Osisi, true  PG was among the top 10 Forbes listed sometime recently. Many wealthy blacks buy homes there.

Domestic violence transcends all social classes and race. Infact, there was this article in a magazine that details the horrifying abuse that high profile women go through in the hands of their husband. And unfortunately, they are embarrased to file charges because of the attendant publicity that might ensue.
