ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- New U.S. Census data released last week shows that about 10 percent of Florida's 20 million residents say they have German ancestry.

About 9 percent of Floridians claim Irish roots, more than 7 percent claim English ancestry, and 7 percent claim Cuban roots.

The ancestral roots with the smallest representation in Florida were Somalis, Ugandans and people from Sierra Leone.

The data comes from 2015, the most recent year available.
