Children of Immigrants: Immigration Trends. Fact Sheet No. 1
Fortuny, Karina; Chaudry, Ajay
Urban Institute (NJ1)
This fact sheet is the first in a series of publications on children of immigrants. The series updates the Urban Institute's May 2006 fact sheet that described the characteristics of children of immigrants in the early 2000s. The current series profiles the population of children of immigrants in the United States using data from the 2007 American Community Survey and other sources. Children in immigrant families are the fastest growing segment of the nation's children population. While the number of children in native families grew by 2.1 million between 1990 and 2007, children of immigrants increased by 8.1 million during this time. The share of children that have at least one foreign-born parent rose rapidly as a result, and now children of immigrants represent more than one in five U.S. children. (Contains 6 figures and 6 notes.)
