Hurun's White Paper on Chinese Investment and Immigration points out that the United States and Canada are the most desirable countries for China's high net worth people, and the main reasons for their overseas investment are asset allocation, risk diversification and children's education. So how many Chinese have emigrated to the United States since 1980, and are they all rich?
 
How many Chinese have emigrated to the United States in the past 30 years?
 
2.2 million Chinese-born people live in the United States
 
The U.S. Census Bureau has data on Chinese immigration to the United States, but it is termed "Chinese-born Americans living in China". The definition refers to people born in China and now living in the United States, including those who have joined the United States, have permanent residence rights in the United States, and legal holders of non-immigrant visas (non-immigrant student visas, work visas, temporary visas).
 
So strictly speaking, the Census Bureau's data on Chinese immigration to the United States are part of the non-immigrant category. Of course, if foreign students can find jobs in the United States after graduation, they can also be converted into immigrant visas. Therefore, the Census Bureau statistics can not be regarded as immigration data, but as the number of people born in China living in the United States.
 
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, by 1960, fewer than 100,000 Chinese-born people (including those born in Hong Kong) lived in the United States, representing 99,735. By 1970, the number of Chinese-born people living in the United States had risen to 172,320,000, an increase of more than 70,000 in 10 years. By 1980, the total number of Chinese-born people living in the United States was 366,500. Since 1980, the number of Chinese born people living in the United States has risen sharply. By 1990, the number of Chinese born people living in the United States was 676.68 million. By 2000, the number of Chinese born people living in the United States was 11924.37 million.
 
From 1990 to 2000, the number of Chinese born people living in the United States increased by more than 500,000, averaging about 50,000 a year. By 2010, the number of Chinese born people living in the United States was 18.08.66 million. From 2000 to 2010, the number of Chinese born people living in the United States increased by more than 600,000, averaging about 60,000 people a year. According to the United Nations, by 2014, 2.2 million Chinese-born people were living in the United States.
 
How many Chinese have emigrated to the United States in the past 30 years?
 
Over the past 30 years, 1.6 million people have been granted green cards in the United States
 
Observing the actual situation of Chinese immigration to the United States, if we want to remove water, the most accurate data should be the number of Chinese people who have obtained the right of permanent residence in the United States (green card), which is the real immigration data. The Homeland Security Department's statistics are authoritative. Every year, Chinese people get complete information about the right of permanent residence in the United States. According to the Department of Homeland Security, from 1980 to 1990, 283,329 Chinese (including Hong Kong residents) received US green cards.
 
From 1990 to 1999, the number of Chinese people who received green cards in the United States was 458,952,000. From 2000 to 2010, 720,157,000 Chinese received US green cards. From 2011 to 2012, 168,800 Chinese received US green cards. Thus, from 1980 to 2012, the total number of Chinese people receiving US green cards was 1639,380,000, which is the actual data of Chinese immigration to the United States in more than 30 years since China's reform and opening up.
 
If you get a green card from the United States, you will still be a Chinese citizen if you do not become a U.S. citizen. So how many Chinese immigrate to the United States to join the United States is another indicator of how many Chinese immigrate to the United States.  According to the U.S. Immigration Bureau, as of 2000, a total of 71,599,000 Chinese citizens (including Hong Kong-born people) had joined the United States after obtaining the U.S. Green Card.
 
According to statistics from the Department of Homeland Security of the United States, from 2001 to 2010, 328,981,000 Chinese citizens joined the United States, averaging more than 30,000 people a year. By 2010, a total of 405.58 million Chinese immigrants to the United States had joined the United States. If compared with the number of Chinese citizens who had received more than 1.6 million U.S. green cards, the proportion of Chinese immigrants to the United States who had joined the United States was not too high.

How do Chinese immigrate to the United States? According to the various ways in which Chinese get the US green card in 2010, there are mainly four ways.
 
First, immigrants from immediate relatives, such as those whose children are parents or whose parents are children, accounted for 19.2% of the total number of people who received green cards in that year.
 
Second, immigrants from non-direct relatives, such as brothers and sisters, seven aunts and eight aunts, accounted for 34.1% of those who received green cards in that year. These two types of relative immigrants constitute the main body of Chinese immigrants to the United States, accounting for 53.3% of the total number of people who received green cards in that year.
 
Thirdly, professional immigrants can obtain permanent residence right by applying for immigration visas through their employers after obtaining their degrees in the United States. This kind of person who gets the US Green Card is a talented person. It is also the most important point that the US hopes to attract talented people through immigration policy. In 2010, occupational migrants accounted for 25.3% of the total number of green card recipients in that year, and the proportion was not low.
 
Fourthly, American green cards are obtained through asylum, which accounts for 21% of the total number of green cards obtained.
