Introduction :

The purpose of this web page is to serve as a place to accumulate information on immigration --- 'factoids' of various kinds --- demographic, social, political, environmental, etc.

In particular, 'numeric factoids' will be collected to try to gather 'quantitative' information as well as 'qualitative' information.

Collecting graphs that bring the numerics to life is also an aim of this page.

This page attempts to group the 'factoids' into categories that are presented below on this web page. See the 'Table of Contents' below for some categories.

In some cases, the 'factoids' could be assigned to two or more of the categories. To avoid duplication, each 'factoid' will be assigned to one of the categories.

The 'factoids' (below) on immigration come mainly from magazine and newspaper articles. But this information may be augmented by web links (for example, to specific Wikipedia pages) --- as well as web links to web searches on pertinent 'keywords'. For example:
