Changing Demography and Circumstances for Young Black Children in African and Caribbean Immigrant FamiliesChanging Demography and Circumstances for Young Black Children in African and Caribbean Immigrant Families
This report, the first in a trio of reports from the Young Children of Black Immigrants research initiative, finds that the 813,000 children under the age of 10 who have Black immigrant parents generally fall in the middle of multiple well-being indicators, faring less well than Asian and white children but better than their native-born Black and Hispanic peers. The report examines their family structure, citizenship status, English proficiency, parental characteristics, poverty, housing, and access to social supports.
