Children of Immigrants Data Tool

Children of Immigrants Data Tool

The Urban Institute's Low-Income Working Families Project has launched a Children of Immigrants Data Tool that enables users to generate detailed charts on the characteristics of children of immigrants nationwide and in individual states and the District of Columbia. Data from 2005 and 2006 allows users to compare populations of children defined by the citizenship of the child or parent. Data include the immigrant status of children and their parents; children's race, ethnicity, and school enrollment; parents' education and English proficiency; and family composition, income, and work status. In additon, the institute has issued a companion report, Children of Immigrants: National and State Characteristics (20 pages, PDF), that highlights key national data and variations across states.
