The Urban Institute Children of Immigrants Data Tool
is an interactive tool designed to generate charts and tables with indicators on children, age 0
to 17, for the United States,, the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the top 100 metro areas using data from
the American Community Survey. The Children of Immigrants Data Tool presents data on a number of
population groups of children defined by the children nativity and citizenship and the nativity,
citizenship, and origin of their parents, such as children with immigrant parents, children with
noncitizen parents, and children with Mexican parents.
The available data include
child characteristics (e.g., child's school enrollment),
parent characteristics (e.g., English proficiency of parents), and
family characteristics (e.g., family poverty)
Your customized chart can present either the number of children or the share (percentage) of
children with a given characteristic.
Funding for the Children of Immigrants Data Tool is provided by the Urban Institute's Low-Income
Working Families Project [link]
