About the Data
Data is from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS), Table B05007. National figures use 1-year estimates while state figures use 5-year estimates; this is because several states with small populations of foreign-born have insufficient sample sizes for the ACS to report 1-year estimates. Note that 5-year estimates will naturally include fewer immigrants from the "2010 or later" period than the more current 1-year estimates. LiveStories calculated the percentages shown here.
