AMERICA'S FOREIGN BORN IN THE LAST 50 YEARS [INFOGRAPHIC] [7 February 2013]
During the last 50 years, the foreign-born population of the United States has undergone dramatic
changes in size, origins, and geographic distribution. This population represented about 1 in 20
residents in 1960, mostly from countries in Europe who settled in the Northeast and Midwest.
Today’s foreign-born population makes up about one in eight U.S. residents, mostly immigrants from
Latin America and Asia who have settled in the West and South. The Decennial Census and the
annual American Community Survey allow us to trace the changes in the foreign-born population
