According to the U.S. Census there are 683,473 Brits living in the States today
We've already done some research to know the things Brits have to adjust to in the U.S., so we decided to go deeper and find out as much as we could about British expats living in the States.
It’s no surprise that New York City is home to the most amount of Brits. However, Portsmouth, is where you are most likely to run into one. Among all the places where Brits reside, the independent city of Portsmouth, Virginia has the highest concentration of British expats relative to the city's population. Almost 5% of this city is British.
We also dug into the social media behavior of Brits to see what the top interests are for those living in this side of the Atlantic.
The data tells us that Her Majesty, The Queen, has a significantly larger following than the Republican Party candidate Donald Trump among Brits. However, Trump comes ahead of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party candidate, in social media likes. Making him over twice as popular as Clinton.
Interestingly enough, Brits tend to favor American celebrities (Lady Gaga over Adele) and athletes (LeBron James over David Beckham) in terms of social media. But one thing the Brits will not replace with its American counterpart is Cadbury, being twice as popular as Hershey's.
But it's not all about politics and sports, we also saw that Brits working in the U.S. are earning significantly higher per year than they would back home. More than double the average UK income.
