Background DHS’s Methodology, Step 2, Estimate the Legally Resident Foreign-born Population Step 2: Estimate the legally resident foreign-born population. DHS uses administrative data to determine the legally resident foreign-born population. 14 According to DHS’s December 2018 report, the legally resident population included foreign - born persons who were: o Naturalized citizens, o granted LPR status, o granted asylum or admitted as refugees, or o admitted under certain nonimmigrant classes that DHS determines as being associated with residence (e.g., students or temporary workers). DHS adjusted the estimated legally resident foreign-born population for factors such as emigration how many residents left the country since their arrival and mortality how many residents died since their arrival. Based on this step, DHS reported in December 2018 that, as of January 1, 2015, the adjusted estimate of the legally resident foreign-born population was 24,520,000. 14 See appendix I for more information on the administrative databases DHS used to determine the legally resident foreign-born population in the United States as of January 1, 2015.
