Occupational Distribution of Employed Workers, March 2002

The March 2002 Current Population Survey reported that 19 million of the 135 million employed US workers were foreign-born. Foreign-born workers were significantly less likely to be in managerial and technical occupations, and more likely to be in farming and service occupations. These occupation gaps were most pronounced for foreign-born workers who arrived since 1990.
