Note: Denominators for computing rates for years 1990-1999 were obtained from Quarterly Estimates of the United States Foreign-born and Native Resident Populations: April 1, 1990, to July 1, 1999 (www.census.gov/population/estimates/nation/nativity/fbtab001.txt). Denominators for computing rates for 2000 were based on an extrapolation to April 2000 population from estimates in U.S. Census Bureau Current Population Reports, P20-534, The Foreign-born Population in the United States: March 2000.
