  1. Too bad it doesn’t break it down to legal vs illegal. I’d bet at least half are not legal and are taking jobs of U.S. citizens.

  2. And the number of Latinos/Hispanic in McHenry County is?

    And the number of Latinos/Hispanic in McHenry County who actually vote is?

    What % of Latinos/Hispanic in McHenry County actually vote is?

    These are basics you never find in local newspapers.

  3. Talking to someone that lives in Harvard, which resides in Chemung and Dunham Township.

    He believes the 39% L/H in Chemung Township & 34% L/H in Dunham Township is under reported.

    His reasoning is because he sees so many H/L around town, at the stores, etc.

  4. Unauthorized immigrants living in the United Sates: 11.2 million in March 2010, which was 3.7% of the population.

  8. About This Report.

    “The Pew Hispanic Center estimates the unauthorized immigrant population using the “residual method,” a well-developed and widely accepted technique that is based on official government data. Under this methodology, a demographic estimate of the legal foreign-born population—naturalized citizens, legal permanent residents, temporary legal residents and refugees—is subtracted from the total foreign-born population. The remainder, or residual, is the source of population estimates and characteristics of unauthorized immigrants.
    These Pew Hispanic Center estimates use data mainly from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a monthly survey of about 55,000 households conducted jointly by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau. CPS is best known as the source for monthly unemployment statistics. Each March, the CPS sample size and questionnaire are expanded to produce additional data on the foreign-born population and other topics. The Pew Hispanic Center estimates make adjustments to the government data to compensate for undercounting of some groups, and therefore its population totals differ somewhat from the ones the government uses. Estimates for any given year are based on a March reference date.”

  9. State-level Estimates
    “State-level estimates should be treated with some caution because they are based on much smaller samples than the national estimates. Estimates from single years can be extremely volatile, so measurement of trends over time can be unreliable. To provide interpretable trends, previous estimates have relied on multiyear averages and regression methods (Passel and Cohn 2010, 2009; Pew Hispanic Center 2006).” Page 26 of the report. Further detail follows, refer to the report.
