California is home to a quarter of the nation's foreign-born residents and they also make up more than a quarter of California's 38 million residents, according to a new Census Bureau report.
Furthermore, the report reveals, nearly a quarter of the nation's noncitizens under 35 years old - 2.3 million persons - are found in California.
No other state comes even close to California's number of foreign-born residents, 10.2 million. The state with the next-largest number, New York, has 4.3 million.
The data come from surveys that the Census Bureau conducts between the decennial censuses.
