This Migration Policy Institute website has a wealth of information about the undocumented population. Learn about the estimated 11 million unauthorized immigrants living in the United States. Where do they live? When did they arrive in the United States, and from which origin countries? What are their levels of education, top industries of employment, incomes, parental and marital status, health care coverage, and more? And how many are potentially eligible for relief from deportation via deferred action? This unique data tool provides detailed sociodemographic profiles for the United States, 41 states (plus the District of Columbia), and 117 counties with the largest unauthorized populations. And estimates of populations eligible for deferred action and their share of the overall unauthorized population are offered for 41 states as well as for the 138 counties with the largest unauthorized populations (see spreadsheets at right).
