From the Document: "This report presents estimates of the size and characteristics of the resident nonimmigrant population in the United States during Fiscal Year (FY) 2014. In this report, the term 'resident nonimmigrant' refers to foreign nationals who are legally admitted into the United States for specific, temporary purposes and whose classes of admission are associated with residency (e.g., students and temporary workers, as opposed to tourists and business travelers). The characteristics analyzed include category of admission (groups of related nonimmigrant visa classes), country of citizenship, age, sex, and destination state. The estimates are derived from U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) administrative records of nonimmigrant arrivals and departures. About 1.7 million nonimmigrants resided in the United States on average during 2014. Temporary workers and their families accounted for slightly more than 45 percent of the total and students and their families accounted for nearly 40 percent. More than half of the population were citizens of Asian countries and 80 percent were ages 18 through 44."
