The data, which was released by the U.S Census Bureau, means that more Ghanaians are gainfully employed and excelling in their different fields than any other set of immigrants in the US.

Ghana is closely followed by Bulgaria with 74.2 %, while other African countries like Kenya and Ethiopia also made up the top 5.
