Together, immigrants and their children make up one-quarter of the U.S. population, with much higher concentration in many cities and suburbs across the country. Urban Institute researchers bring in-depth expertise on wellbeing and public services to explore the experiences of families and children across these diverse communities, by lifting up key demographic data, exploring how public services can reach those who need them, and understanding the multigenerational integration of immigrant families.
