The 1.86 million Indian immigrants who were living in the U.S. in 2011 represented the third-largest immigrant group by country of origin behind Mexico and China, according to a new study by the Migration Policy Institute.
The share of Indian immigrants among all foreign-born in the U.S. has increased from less than 0.5 percent in 1960 to almost 5 percent in 2011, the report said.

They are also more concentrated in working ages than immigrants overall and India-born men outnumber India-born women.
