Abstract In August of 2008, the U.S. Census Bureau sponsored a supplement to the monthly Current Population Survey (CPS) questionnaire. The Immigration/Emigration Supplement (referred to in this paper as the Migration Supplement or simply the Supplement) focused on five topics citizenship, year of entry, residence one year ago, residents and emigrants abroad, and monetary transfers and included questions not commonly found on other surveys. The overall purpose of the Migration Supplement was to provide the Census Bureau with additional data to aid its mission of improving knowledge on the size and characteristics of the foreign-born population in the United States. The CPS, sponsored jointly by the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, is the primary source of labor force statistics for the population of the United States. The CPS is the source of numerous high-profile economic statistics, including the national unemployment rate, and provides data on a wide range of issues relating to employment and earnings. Although labor market information is central to the CPS, the survey provides a wealth of other demographic, social, and economic data that are widely used in both the public and private sectors.
