2008 American Community Survey and Census Data on the Foreign Born by State

Migration Policy Institute

To facilitate analysis of immigrant population growth within the United States on a stat-by-state basis, the Migration Policy Institute developed this online interactive map. Utilizing national and state-by-state data on immigrant populations from the 1990 and 2000 Decennial Censuses and the 2008 American Community Surveys (ACS), MPI developed fact sheets about the demographic & social, language & education, workforce, and income & poverty characteristics of immigrants. To access the fact sheets for states, simply click on the desired state in the map.
