Texas Immigration Map

The US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey asks millions of people every year detailed questions about their social, economic, and demographic situations, along with country of birth. The most common country of birth among respondents born outside the US was Mexico. Therefore, the map above excludes Mexico, and highlights the next most common birthplace of foreign-born respondents by county.

Texas Diversity Map

The US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey asks millions of people every year detailed questions about their social, economic, and demographic situations. Using this data, we mapped a diversity index—calculated by Axios—for every county in Texas. The percentages reflect the likely-hood of two people chosen at random being a different race or ethnicity from each other. For instance, if your county had a diversity index score of 52.5%, that would mean that there is about a 52% chance that two people selected at random would be of a different background.
