  • In 2000, Illinois foreign-born population is 1.5 million – which rounds to 2 million
  • SOURCE: ACS 2002 ranking table at http://www.census.gov/acs/www/Products/Ranking/2002/R15T050.htm NOTES: This was the only ranking table with a nativity-related variable.
  • CAUTION: The category “Speak a language other than English” is not in the original table– I created it by summing the specific-language-group categories (“speak Spanish”, etc). If this table needs to have only the categories originally published, simply delete the “Speak a language other than English” row. The other rows were pulled directly from the table (Ns, of course; no percents were given, so I had to calculate those). SOURCE: PCT020. Nativity by Language Spoken at Home by Ability to Speak English for the Population 5 Years and Over NOTES: Of the foreign born who do not speak “only English” at home, the majority (53.8%) speak Spanish. [14,665,296 is 53.8% of 27,260,662]
