Notes: The age-sex pyramid of the foreign-born population from El Salvador shares some features of the “diamond shape” population pyramid of the total foreign born. This includes the largest number of immigrants in the economically active ages of 20 to 54 and relatively smaller numbers under age 20 and over age 54. Unlike the population pyramid of the total immigrant population, the middle part -- representing the economically active population -- is streched out, while the top and the bottom -- representing the children and elderly population -- are small. Like the Mexican immigrant population but unlike the Filipino immigrant population, the foreign-born population from El Salvador overall has more men than women. This is reflected in a high male-to-female ratio that indicates there were 107 males to every 100 females. However, this is not the case among Salvadoran immigrants who are older than 50. There are more women than men in each of the age groups in the older adult population.
There were more than 1.26 million immigrants from El Salvador residing in the United States in 2011. Male-to-female ratio: 107.3
