Immigrants in the United States
Data from the Census Bureau shows that 42.4 million immigrants (both documented and undocumented) now live in the United States. This Backgrounder provides a detailed picture of immigrants, also referred to as the foreign-born, living in the United States by country of birth and state. It also examines the progress immigrants make over time. All figures are for both documented and undocumented immigrants who responded to Census Bureau surveys.
Among the report's findings:
Population Size and Growth
Labor and Employment
Immigrant Progress Over Time
Impact on Public Schools
Impact on the Aging of American Society
