I strongly suggest that the readers review this survey. It dispels many myths traditionally accepted. Although it maybe somewhat compromised by the those filling the survey, it gives an interesting cross section, and probably the most up to date review of both the Portuguese American and Canadian American Diáspora.
Well worth reading!
