Mapping Migration in the United States

Mapping Migration in the United States
On Thursday, we published a series of interactive charts showing how Americans have moved between states since 1900. The charts show striking patterns for many states: You can trace the rise of migrant and immigrant populations all along the Southwest, particularly in Texas and Arizona; the influx of New Yorkers and other Northeasterners into Florida starting in the 1970s; and the growth in the Southern share of the Illinois population during the Great Migration. In 1900, 95 percent of the people living in the Carolinas were born there, with similarly high numbers all through the Southeast. More than a hundred years later, those percentages are nearly cut in half. Related:  Les Etats-Unis, l'adaptation du territoire à la mondialisationImmigrationRegionalism

A Fool and His Money Immigrant Women in the United States: A Portrait of Demographic Diversity The 18.9 million immigrant women and girls in the United States in 2008 present a portrait of demographic diversity on many fronts. An analysis of Census Bureau data reveals that immigrant women are not easily categorized or stereotyped—and that many common myths about immigrants are shattered when we look carefully at the demographic diversity of these women. For instance, while Mexico is the single largest country of origin for female immigrants—accounting for more than one-quarter of all foreign-born females—more than two-fifths of female immigrants come from countries other than those in the top ten. Mexico is the Single Largest Country of Origin for Female Immigrants Immigrant Males Slightly Outnumber Immigrant Females There were 18.9 million female immigrants in the United States in 2008, accounting for just under half (49.9 percent) of the total foreign-born population. Immigrant Females from Cuba and Canada Tend to be the Oldest; Those from Mexico and India the Youngest Endnotes

Urban Dictionary, April 1: April Reals The Best and Worst Places to Grow Up: How Your Area Compares How much extra money a county causes children in poor families to make, compared with children in poor families nationwide. Manhattan is very bad for income mobility for children in poor families. It is better than only about 7 percent of counties. Location matters – enormously. But even Putnam County is below the national average. These findings, particularly those that show how much each additional year matters, are from a new study by Raj Chetty and Nathaniel Hendren that has huge consequences on how we think about poverty and mobility in the United States. Consider Manhattan, the focus of this articleour best guess for where you might be reading this article. It’s among the worst counties in the U.S. in helping poor children up the income ladder. Here are the estimates for how much 20 years of childhood in Manhattan adds or takes away from a child’s income (compared with an average county), along with the national percentile ranking for each.

100 Years Of Immigrants In America, In Two Graphs : Planet Money Immigrants make up roughly the same share of the U.S. population today as they did a century ago. But changes in the global economy, and in U.S. immigration law, have dramatically shifted where U.S. immigrants are coming from. A century ago, U.S. immigrants were overwhelmingly European. Today, Latin America and Asia are the big drivers of U.S. immigration, and Europe accounts for just a small fraction of the whole. Correction: A previous version of the first graphic displayed an incorrect number for 1960.

35 maps that explain how America is a nation of immigrants by Dara Lind on October 2, 2015 American politicians, and Americans themselves, love to call themselves "a nation of immigrants": a place where everyone's family has, at some point, chosen to come to seek freedom or a better life. America has managed to maintain that self-image through the forced migration of millions of African slaves, restrictive immigration laws based on fears of "inferior" races, and nativist movements that encouraged immigrants to assimilate or simply leave. But while the reality of America's immigrant heritage is more complicated than the myth, it's still a fundamental truth of the country's history.

2050 Map Megaregions2008 What Americans Want from Immigration Reform in 2014 Over the last year, immigration reform policy has stalled in Congress, but many groups—including prominent religious groups—have continued to lobby for its passage. Has the lack of legislative action over the last year dampened support among Americans for immigration reform? How might changes in public opinion affect the prospect for immigration reform in Congress? And will the issue of immigration reform have any impact on the 2014 mid-term elections? On June 10, the religion, policy and politics project at Brookings co-hosted an event with Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) to explore the results of a new survey conducted by PRRI in partnership with Brookings. The new survey called back over 1,500 respondents from the landmark PRRI/Brookings 2013 survey on religion, values and immigration reform.
