Detailed Estimates of the Overstay Population Residing in the United States in 2017

These three tables show detailed information about the overstay population residing in the United States in 2017.

The tables augment the report on overstays released by CMS on April 24, 2019. The CMS estimates of undocumented residents are derived from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. A detailed description of the CMS estimation procedures, including the assurance of privacy of survey respondents, is published at: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/pdf/10.1177/233150241400200403.

As with all survey data augmented with statistical assumptions, a range of error exists for each of these estimates. Caution in the interpretation of these estimates should increase as the size of the estimate decreases.
