Someone I work with purchased an atlas which showed the states/counties, and
percent breakdowns. I copied the Polish percentages, and have totals for many
other groups, but not by state/county. These are the rounded totals based on
those who listed this ancestry first:
Russian: 3,000,000 (over 2,000,000 of which are Jewish)
Roman Catholic: 55 million
Jewish: 5,500,000: 38% Reform; 35% Conservative; 20% Secular; 6% Orthodox
Jews can be of any nationality, and are treated as a religious group. So some
of the Ukrainian, Polish, etc. may also be Jews.
There was no breakout for Belorussians.
