Immigrants Admitted to the United States, 2000 (ICPSR 3486)
This data collection contains information on the characteristics of aliens who became legal permanent residents of the United States in fiscal year 2000 (October 1999 through September 2000). Data are presented for two types of immigrants. The first category, New Arrivals, arrived from outside the United States with valid immigration visas issued by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. The second category, Adjustments, were already in the United States with temporary status and were adjusted to legal permanent residence through petition to the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. Variables include port of entry, month and year of admission, class of admission, and state and area to which the immigrants were admitted. Demographic information such as age, sex, marital status, occupation, country of birth, country of last permanent residence, and nationality is also provided.
The public-use data files in this collection are available for access by the general public. Access does not require affiliation with an ICPSR member institution.
