Here is a new report, released just today, on the the post-secondary educational attainment of immigrant and second-generation students. Information for the report came from the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS), another study from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The report is based primarily on Hispanic and other immigrant populations, and includes post-secondary choices made by these students. The full report is available for download as a .pdf file from the link below. The URL is provided under the official document description.
This Statistics in Brief describes the characteristics and undergraduate experiences of 2007–08 undergraduates who immigrated to the United States or who had at least one immigrant parent (second-generation Americans). The analysis compares these two groups with all undergraduates (excluding foreign students) and with third- or higher generation American undergraduates whose parents were born in the United States. The findings are based on data from the 2007–08 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:08), a nationally representative sample of more than 100,000 students enrolled in U.S. postsecondary institutions.
