Nativity and Place of Birth of Resident Population for Cities of 100,000 or more: 2005

Added By Infochimps

The dataset includes the number of residents in cities with a population of 100,000 or more that were born in a foreign country or in the United States. There are also several other figures in the dataset, including FIPS codes, the percentage of the total city population born in and out of the US and year of entry. The survey is limited to the household population and excludes the population living in institutions, college dormitories, and other group quarters. The data is based on a sample and subject to sampling variability.


The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 41):
