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., among California children living in households with incomes below the federal poverty threshold in 2012-2016, 59% lived with foreign-born parents).
Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey (Jan. 2018).
Footnote: The federal poverty threshold was $24,339 for a family of two adults and two children in 2016. The foreign-born population includes naturalized U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, temporary migrants, humanitarian migrants, and unauthorized migrants. Data are displayed for geographies with at least 10,000 people based on 2016 population estimates. These estimates are based on a survey of the population and are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The notaion 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.
