Children in immigrant families (5-year average) in Washington

Change Indicator


Data Provided By
Note: Non-consecutive years appear adjacent in the trend line
because one or more years have been deselected.

Definitions: The share of children under age 18 who are immigrants and/or reside with at least one foreign-born parent.

Data Source: Data for this measure come from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Fact Finder, American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year Estimates. 

Data were retrieved from (Table B05009).

S: Data estimate has been suppressed. Numbers and percentages are suppressed when the number of children under 18 is 10 or fewer per category per county.

*Please use these estimates with caution. The total confidence interval (upper bound minus lower bound) of the percent estimate, is 10 percentage points or greater, which indicates that this estimate has a large margin of error. This generally occurs when estimate relies on small number of cases. To obtain total confidence interval values around the estimates for this indicator please contact Washington KIDS COUNT.

The 2011-2015 ACS data release marked the sixth time that 5-year estimates were released for all areas.  This indicator table (B05009) was first introduced for the 2006-2010 ACS 5-year estimates. The ACS 2009-2013 data were collected during calendar years 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.

The 5-year ACS estimates represent the average characteristics over the 5-year period of time, and therefore are less current than 1-year and 3-yearACS estimates. However, these estimates are more reliable because they are based on a larger sample size and provide data for counties with populations less than 20,000. The 3-year estimates are available for geographic areas with populations of 20,000 or greater, while 1-year estimates are only published for populations of 65,000 or greater.
