In the United States 2020 census, approximately 1.4 million people identified with Czech roots or identity. These figures are based on data released by the federal agency, the Census Bureau, responsible for conducting the census. The highest number of people identifying with Czech roots can be found in Texas, Illinois, and California.

In the American census, respondents declare their race, and within that framework, they could specify their ethnic identity or community in 2020. Either independently or in combination with other identities, 1.4 million respondents identified as Czech.

Similar data were recorded in censuses of Hungarians, Portuguese, and Dans. The largest number of people identified with English roots (46.6 million people), followed closely by German roots (almost 45 million people) and Irish roots (38.6 million people).

The largest non-European ethnic group was Mexicans, with nearly 36 million people identifying as such. Another significant group was African Americans, with 24.6 million people marking that identity on the census forms.

The Census Bureau stated that it received over 350 million responses to questions about race and ethnic group affiliation. This is six times more than in the 2010 census. The significant difference is due to variations in the way the census was conducted, so the data from 2010 and 2020 are not entirely comparable. According to the 2020 U.S. census results, there were 331 million people living in the United States.
