Definition and Source



The percent of all children ages 0 to 17 who live with a householder who has at least a high school degree.

The child may not be the “own child” of the householder but related to the householder by birth, marriage, or adoption. Children, under 18 years who maintain households or are spouses or unmarried partners of householders are excluded from this analysis.
Children in immigrant families is defined as children who are themselves foreign-born or reside with at least one foreign-born parent. Foreign-born is defined as either a U.S. citizen by naturalization or not a citizen of the U.S. Native-born is defined as born in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, or the Northern Marianas or born abroad of American parents. The foreign-born status of children not living with either parent is based solely on the status of the child and no other household member. Children living in subfamilies are linked to their parent(s) and not the householder.
