State Net Capitol Journal: California's Immigrant Population Largest in Nation by Far


California has the largest foreign-born population of all U.S. states by a wide margin, according to a report released earlier this year by the Pew Hispanic Center, which was based on the Census Bureau's 2011 American Community Survey (ACS), the largest survey of U.S. households. As of 2011, the Golden State's 10,222,680 foreign-born residents made up 27.1 percent of the total population of 37,691,912. No. 2 state NEW YORK's foreign-born population numbered 4,320,062, which represented 22.2 percent of a smaller total of 19,465,197 residents. Wyoming and North Dakota had the smallest immigrant populations, 16,419 and 16,649, respectively, comprising less than 3 percent of their total populations.
