Estimating the Legal Status of Foreign-Born People: Working Paper 2021-02

Julia Heinzel, Rebecca Heller and Natalie Tawil

No 57022, Working Papers from Congressional Budget Office

Abstract: The Congressional Budget Office recently adapted a methodology to estimate, on an annual basis, the total number of people in the United States without legal status and to assign legal status to the foreign-born population in survey data to match those annual totals. This paper describes CBO’s methodology, the analytical choices made in developing that methodology, and the sensitivity of the outcomes to alternative choices.
