DEFINITIONS & SOURCES

COLLAPSE

Definitions: The share of children under age 18, living in immigrant families, who are U.S. citizen.
The children can be either U.S. citizen by naturalization or Native-born defined as born in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, or the Northern Marianas or born abroad of American parents. The foreign-born status of children not living with either parent is based solely on the status of the child and no other household member. Children living in subfamilies are linked to their parent(s) and not the householder.
