Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Profiles

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Profiles

Learn about populations eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) nationally and in top states and counties. This data tool, based on a methodology that imputes unauthorized status using U.S. Census Bureau 2008-12 American Community Survey and 2008 Survey of Income and Program Participation, provides estimates of unauthorized immigrant youth currently eligible for DACA, those who meet all but the educational criteria, and children who will age into eligibility. The tool provides estimates for 41 states and 111 counties, and detailed profiles for the U.S., 25 states, and 36 counties. (See below map to navigate to county profiles.)
