UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANT POPULATION PROFILES [15 January 2015]
Press Release 15 January 2015
MPI Releases Detailed Data Profiles of Unauthorized Immigrants and Estimates of Deferred Action Populations for Top U.S. Counties
Learn about the estimated 11.4 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? And how many are potentially eligible for relief from deportation via deferred action? This unique data tool provides detailed sociodemographic profiles for the U.S., 41 states and D.C., and 94 counties with the largest unauthorized populations.
To access detailed profiles for the 94 counties in the United States with the largest unauthorized populations, click on the state of interest below to show individual profiles.
This data tool is based on a methodology that imputes unauthorized status using U.S. Census Bureau 2008-12 American Community Survey and 2008 Survey of Income and Program Participation data. James Bachmeier at Temple University analyzed the data on legal status of immigrants that provide the basis for these estimates. Jennifer Van Hook at The Pennsylvania State University advised in developing the methodology.
