Children of Immigrants: Number and Share of All Children Under 18
* Includes only children who reside with at least one parent. The term foreign born refers to people residing in the United States who were not US citizens at birth. The foreign-born population includes naturalized citizens, legal permanent residents, certain legal non-immigrants (e.g., refugees and persons on student or work visas), and persons illegally residing in the United States. The terms "foreign born" and "immigrant" are used interchangeably. Immigrant families are defined here as families with at least one foreign-born parent.
