No group of children in America is expanding more rapidly than those in immigrant families. During the seven years from tothe number of children in immigrant families grew by 47 percent, compared with only 7 percent for U.S.-born children with U.S.-born parents.

Bynearly one of every five (14 million) children was an immigrant or had immigrant parents. Immigration is sometimes claimed to be a key contributor to economic growth.

Few academic studies, however, examine the direct link between immigration and growth. And the evidence on the outcomes that the literature does examine (such as the impact on wages or government receipts and expenditures) is far too mixed to allow unequivocal inferences.

Economics is the important you get to know how societies, governments, businesses, households, and individuals allocate their scarce resources. The economics can also provide valuable knowledge for making decisions in everyday life.
