But you're right about raw numbers mattering too. Chicago for instance is 7% Italian and yet unlike Baltimore it has more of something resembling Italian enclaves (Norridge and Elmwood Park are both about 20% Italian).

I dont find Chicago to have the same Italian feel or influence as a city when compared to NYC/Philly/Boston but point taken

I assume those % are metro stats? Ancedontally, I have an Italian-American friend from Richmond. Accent didn't seem southern to my ears.

New Orleans is more of an anomaly in the South and that includes its demographics. They even have the "Yat" accent. Where else in the South do you hear people talk like that! lol.
