Notes: The age-sex pyramid of the foreign-born population from Mexico has many of the same characteristics as 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. What is unusual about the Mexican immigrant population pyramid is the preponderance of male migrants between the ages of 15 and 44 (compare to the pyramid of the Filipino born). This is reflected in the high male-to-female ratio that indicates that there were 114 males for every 100 females in the Mexican foreign-born population in 2011.
There were 11.7 million immigrants from Mexico residing in the United States in 2011. Male-to-female ratio: 114.0.
