May 30, 2013 | Publication | Migration

A brief issued by the MacArthur-supported Migration Policy Institute offers a current demographic profile of noncitizens in the United States based on the first national self-reported data regarding legal status. Using data generated by a U.S. Census Bureau study and analyzed by Pennsylvania State University’s Population Research Institute, the report provides a summary of the age, gender, employment patterns, income levels, and health insurance coverage of the unauthorized immigrant population in the United States. This brief is intended to inform the discussion on healthcare access for unauthorized immigrants seeking U.S. citizenship.
