The number of Pensylvanians claiming German as a single ancestry rose by 9.7% during the 1980s, according to the Pennsylvania State Data Center at Penn State Harrisburg.  Almost 1.9 million of all Pennsylvaniains who reported a signle ancestry in the 1990 census claimed German ancestry.  That works out to 28.4% of the total in that category.  Source: Focus Magazine, 1 Sep 1992
