Additional Comments: In 1960, the foreign-born population made up about 5% of the US population. By 2015, this number had increased to over 40 million and the foreign-born made up about 13% of the US population. As a result, the health and mortality of the foreign-born carry an increasing weight in estimates of health and mortality at the national, regional and local levels and among the racial/ethnic population subgroups. This presentation reviews evidence of the mortality levels of the foreign born, with examples of their contribution to health and mortality in the United States.
