Description

NATIVITY classifies each person as native-born or foreign-born (i.e., whether a first-generation immigrant) and further specifies whether the parents of a native-born person were native-born or foreign-born (i.e., whether a second-generation immigrant). NATIVITY is constructed from information in the BPL, FBPL, and MBPL variables, which respectively report the place of birth of the respondent and his or her father and mother. Persons born in outlying U.S. territories and possessions and those born abroad to U.S. parents are treated as foreign-born in NATIVITY.
