The Urban Institute has a data tool that pulls information on children of immigrants from the American Community Survey, so if you wanted to know what percentage of children of immigrants in the US had parents with a Bachelors’ degree (33%), it’s a few clicks away.
The data in this interactive map refers to the total number (or cumulative “stocks”) of migrants living around the world. Since migrants have both an origin and a destination, international migrants can be viewed from two directions – as an emigrant (leaving an origin country) or as an immigrant (entering a destination country).
Use these interactive tools, data charts, and maps to learn the origins and destinations of international migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers; the current-day and historical size of the immigrant population by country of settlement; top 25 destinations for migrants; and annual asylum applications by country of destination.
Generate a profile of selected demographic characteristics of immigrants who became lawful permanent residents during the fiscal year. Profiles are available by country of birth, state of residence, and core based statistical area of residence. Data goes back to 2003.
State-by-state data on immigrants and the native born based on demographics (population and country of birth, age, Hispanic origin, children/ families); language and education (English proficiency and educational attainment, languages spoken at home); workforce (immigrants' share of workers, top occupations and industries, skill underutilization of the college educated); and income (average incomes, poverty rates).
Learn about the estimated 11 million unauthorized immigrants living in the United States. Where do they live? When did they arrive in the United States, and from which origin countries? What are their levels of education, top industries of employment, incomes, parental and marital status, health care coverage, and more?
