Immigrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras in U.S., 2008-2012

Use this map to explore foreign-born populations from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras in the United States. Using pooled data from the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey for the 2008-2012 period, this map shows the top areas of residence for the foreign born from each of the three countries and collectively by metropolitan statistical area (MSA). Select a population to the right of the map. Bubbles will display population estimates for the MSA, as well as the area's share of the total population surveyed in the United States.

Notes: 

1) *Data are from U.S. Census Bureau's pooled 2008-2012 American Community Surveys.

2) The term "immigrants" (or "foreign born") refers to people residing in the United States who were not U.S. citizens at birth. This population includes naturalized citizens, lawful permanent residents (LPRs), certain legal nonimmigrants (e.g., persons on student or work visas), those admitted under refugee or asylee status, and persons illegally residing in the United States. "Metropolitan areas" refer to the greater metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, CA or Chicago-Joliet-Naperville, IL-IN-WI.

3) Population estimates for metropolitan statistical areas with an immigrant population under 2,000 persons are not provided due to insufficient sample size. Rankings only apply to metropolitan areas that meet this criterion.
