*Estimates of the Unauthorized Immigrant Population Residing in the United
States: January 2009 *[9 February 2010]



[full-text, 8 pages]

This report provides estimates of the number of unauthorized immigrants
residing in the United States as of January 2009 by period of entry, region
and country of origin, state of residence, age, and gender. The estimates
were obtained using the “residual” methodology employed for estimates of the
unauthorized population in 2008 (see Hoefer, Rytina, and Baker, 2009). The
unauthorized resident population is the remainder or “residual” after
estimates of the legally resident foreign-born population – legal permanent
residents (LPRs), asylees, refugees, and nonimmigrants – are subtracted from
estimates of the total foreign-born population. Data to estimate the legally
resident population were obtained primarily from the Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) while the American Community Survey (ACS) of the U.S. Census
Bureau was the source for estimates of the total foreign-born population.
