Definition: Estimated percentage of children ages 0-17 living with at least one parent who was born outside of the United States, by income level (e.g., in 2014-2018, among California children living with foreign-born parents, 49.8% had family incomes at or above 200% of their federal poverty threshold).
Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey (Jan. 2020).
Footnote: Data presented are for families with sons or daughters by birth, marriage, or adoption. The foreign-born population includes naturalized U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, temporary migrants, humanitarian migrants, and unauthorized migrants. The federal poverty threshold was $25,465 for a family of two adults and two children in 2018. Data are displayed for geographies with at least 10,000 people based on 2018 population estimates. These estimates are based on a survey of the population and are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The notation S refers to estimates that have been suppressed because the margin of error was greater than 5 percentage points. N/A means that data are not available. Some regions listed are Census Designated Places (CDPs), such as East Los Angeles; CDPs are communities within the unincorporated part of a county. In 2010 the Census Bureau implemented new population benchmarks, so caution should be taken when comparing 2005-2009 data with later years.
