ABSTRACT
During the last half of the 20th century, Yugoslavia experienced conditions that typically cause people to think about leaving their homes to start a new life in another land, a weak economy, political instability and war. It is estimated that, in the two-decade period between the end of World War I and the beginning of World II, more than 80,000 immigrants from Yugoslavia were admitted to North America. Many of these immigrants were ethnic Slavs. In 1992, after the United States officially recognized the breakaway republics of Slovenia, Croatia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina as independent states, the U.S. immigration statistics for the first time began tracking the number of newcomers from the different regions of Yugoslavia.
