Definition: Estimated percentage of children ages 0-17 living with at least one parent who was born outside of the United States (e.g., in 2014-2018, 48.3% of California children lived with foreign-born parents).
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. 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.
