According to a new brief from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, based on data from 2008-2012, there are approximately 1.6 million people living in the United States who were born in Africa.

Although these numbers do not include children born in the United States, and may well be an underestimate, the data show an extraordinary rate of growth, from 1 percent of the foreign-born population in 1970 (less than 80,000 born in Africa) to 4 percent in 2008-2012.
