Every state in the country is currently home to hundreds—or in many cases, thousands—of DACA recipients. Clawing back the protections afforded to this group upsets community networks and schools, and can hurt local employers and businesses dependent upon Dreamers to serve as workers and customers. To better understand how the DACA-eligible population contributes to individual states, "Examining the Contributions of the DACA-Eligible Population in Key States" provides estimates on the economic activity of the Dreamer population in 26 states across the country—the areas where we estimate the DACA-eligible population exceeded 10,000 people in 2015. Our estimates are derived from the 2013–2015 American Community Survey, and rely on the same calculation techniques used in previous NAE studies on the subset of undocumented immigrants eligible for the DACA program.
