Center for Immigration Studies does the work, gives us a compilation of government data on immigrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 12, 2018

This should keep enquiring minds busy!

Here is CIS’s press release this morning:

Launching of New Immigration Data Portal

Washington, D.C. (March 12, 2018) – The Center for Immigration Studies announces the creation of a new immigration data portal. The portal consolidates government agencies’ most recent immigration statistics in one location, allowing easy access to detailed information on a multitude of key topics in immigration such as crime, illegal immigration, and labor.

Visit the data portal at: https://cis.org/Immigration-Statistics-Data-Portal

The Center’s goal is to lessen the challenge of finding important immigration statistics so that fact-based research can play a larger role in informing the national debate on immigration policy. Whether the user is searching for specific numbers on refugee arrivals by country of origin, E-verify statistics reports, or the jobsite location and wage data of requested foreign workers, this portal will make finding the data dramatically easier.

Mark Krikorian, the Center’s executive director, said “It is my hope that the immigration debate will benefit from the launching of this data portal. It is imperative that immigration policy be formed by accurate data; this initiative will make it easier for all parties to access crucial immigration statistics.”

This post is filed in my ‘Where to find information‘ category and in ‘Refugee Statistics.

    I am looking for an article you did about how there is a way to ask the government or the resettlement agencies about where the refugees are located, and if they are being tracked like they should be. Do you remember that one? I cannot find it.

      Are you referring to individually tracking refugees or are you talking about data bases showing where the different nationalities are being placed as they enter the country?
