This policy brief reports comparative findings from 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2000 census data that show positive trends over time with respect to California's foregn-born populations. "Not only have the sharp increases in immigration of the past few decades leveled off, but fewer immigrants come to California at or below the poverty line and overall levels of impoverishment amongst the foreign-born in the state have also dropped. Taken as a whole, these trends indicate a gradual but historic turnaroundin the state that bodes well for future improvementsin the welfare of its residents."
