Immigration (the movement of people from other countries to the United States) is a source of population growth in Arizona. Estimates of immigration have been produced annually since 2001 as part of the annual estimates of the population produced by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Immigration data are presented on Arizona Indicators since 2001 for the United States, Arizona, and the 15 Arizona counties. State and national data are reported in December. County data are released in March.

Data Quality Comments: 

Immigration is estimated. While counts of legal immigration are available, entry to the United States frequently occurs prior to the year in which the immigrant is included in the statistics. Estimates of the number of undocumented immigrants are crude.

Visualization Notes:

The existing time series since 2000 was created prior to the release of the 2010 census count. Given that the census count was considerably lower than the estimated population for Arizona, the 2000 through 2009 estimates will be substantially revised by the Census Bureau late in 2011.
