WASHINGTON – With the November 4th election just days away, the Migration Policy Institute is providing election profiles online that examine voter registration by country of birth. The fact sheets provide breakdowns for foreign-born citizens in each state and the size of their vote during the 2004 general election.
The election profiles also outline the size and growth of the foreign-born population (citizen and non-citizen) as a share of each state’s total population, and provide voter breakdowns by ethnicity.
Election fact sheets for all 50 states and the District of Columbia are available online at:www.migrationpolicy.org/voter_factsheets.php.
The findings are based on data from the Census Bureau’s 2006 American Community Survey; the Federal Election Commission, the Migration Policy Institute Data Hub and the Pew Hispanic Center.
For more state-by-state information on the foreign born, including income, workforce, education, language, demographic and country of origin data, please visit the MPI Data Hub at www.migrationinformation.org/datahub
