How do the numbers of Spanish immigrants compare to those from other countries in Europe?

About 244,000 Spanish people crossed the Atlantic Ocean to come to the United States between 1820 and 1974.

By comparison, about 25 million Germans and 9 million Italians came to the United States between 1820 and 1974.

That means about one Spaniard crossed the Atlantic for every 139 Germans and Italians.
