Topic: Population and demographics (Immigrants and aliens)

Type: Report

Coverage: California


Examines the demographics, socioeconomic characteristics, and geographic location of second-generation immigrants in California – i.e., U.S.-born individuals with at least one foreign-born parent. Finds that over half (54%) are children and that a majority live in Los Angeles County. As these children age over the next decades, they could dramatically transform California’s adult population with their increasing presence in the state’s colleges, labor force, and voting population.
