Notes:
  • In the county level, aggregation of persons from all foreign places of birth is the same as the sum of male and female foreign born. However, in the national and state level, aggregation of persons from all foreign places of birth over counts the sum of Census published male and female foreign born. This discrepancy occurred because national and state level’s total male and female foreign born counts were derived from aggregating county level’s total male and female foreign born.
  • In the county level, depending on the state, selected foreign places of birth were iterated and others were omitted. Even though county level’s published male and female foreign born counts were the same as the aggregations of persons from all foreign places of birth, they were less than the actual total foreign born counts.
  • National and state level did not omitted any places of birth, hence the aggregation of person from all foreign places of birth will always be higher than the published total male and female foreign born counts (these counts were aggregates of counties’ total male and female foreign born, and since counties did not iterate all places of birth, state and national level’s published male and female foreign born counts will be lower than aggregation of person from all foreign places of birth).
  • Universe: “Total Foreign Born Population” was created by Social Explorer. Caution: County level’s total is the aggregate of selected foreign places birth (which was determined by the state). National and State level’s total is aggregate of all persons with a foreign places birth.
