This report describes the foreign-born population 65 years and older in the United States using data from the 2012-2016 American Community Survey five-year estimates. The study examines population size and geographic distribution; social and demographic characteristics (sex, age, race and Hispanic origin, country and region of birth, year of entry, citizenship status, language spoken at home, marital status, educational attainment, disability status, and living arrangements); and economic characteristics (homeownership, labor force participation, poverty status, health insurance coverage and income).
