This new data brief by the Urban Institute is the second in a series that profiles children of immigrants using up-to-date census data and other sources. The brief describes the family circumstances of children of immigrants, including family structure and parental employment.

Major findings include:

  • Half of children of immigrants live with two foreign-born parents, and a quarter live with both a native-born and a foreign-born parent
  • Children of immigrants are more likely to live with both parents and to live in larger families
  • Immigrant families (92%) exhibit high work effort
  • A quarter of children of immigrants have parents that do not have a high school degree
  • More than 60 percent of children of immigrants have at least one limited English proficient (LEP) parent
