Foreign-Born Population from India, by Age and Sex, for the United States: 2000

Notes: 

The age-sex pyramid of the foreign-born population from India has many of the same characteristics of the “diamond shape” population pyramid of the total foreign born. This includes the largest number of immigrants in the economically active ages of 20 to 54 and relatively smaller numbers under age 20 and over age 54. Like the Mexican immigrant population, the foreign-born population from India has more men than women. This is reflected in a high male-to-female ratio that indicates there were 117 males to every 100 females. Unlike the Mexican immigrant population, however, the preponderance of males over females is not limited to the economically active ages of 15 to 44 but occurs in most age groups.
