Migration from Oceania to the US 1870-1957

From 1870 until 1930, relatively low numbers of migrants relocated from Oceania to the United States. The vast majority of these migrants originally came from Australia and New Zealand, although there were some years in the 1880s where migration from the Pacific Islands exceeded these levels (the United States also colonized many islands in the Pacific during this time, and still has some territories in the region). The highest levels of migration from Australia and New Zealand came directly after the Second World War, when more than 6,000 people migrated to the US in 1946 alone.
