WASHINGTON – The Migration Policy Institute today released election profiles for Texas and Ohio that examine voter registration by nativity, providing breakdowns for foreign-born citizens and the size of their vote during the 2004 general election.
The election profiles also outline the size and growth of the foreign-born population (citizen and noncitizen) as a share of each state’s total population, and provide voter breakdowns by ethnicity.
Election profiles for all 50 states and the District of Columbia will be available on MPI’s website later today.
The election profiles are based on data from the Census Bureau’s 2006 American Community Survey; the Federal Election Commission; the Migration Policy Institute Data Hub and the Pew Hispanic Center.
For more state-by-state information on the foreign born, including income, workforce, education, language, demographic and country of origin data, please visit the MPI Data Hub at www.migrationinformation.org/datahub
