It is supposed that there are about 150 or more ethnic groups in

the United States. However, it is extremely hard to define such

number in a melting pot nation like the United States due to

multi-ethnic population and annually increasing number of

immigration. Link below is the category of Wikipedia.org, which

lists 150 ethnic groups in the United States.
