ABSTRACT

CBO Paper: A Description of the Immigrant Population   [open pdf - 349KB]

"This paper is the first of several reports by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) intended to present the facts and research on immigration to help inform the agency's projections of the federal budget and the economy. The paper focuses on the characteristics of immigrants, including where they come from, where they reside, and how those patterns have changed over time, as well as immigrants' level of education, the industries and occupations in which they work, and their earnings. In keeping with CBO's mandate to provide objective, nonpartisan analysis, this paper makes no recommendations."
