For instance, while Mexico is the single largest country of origin for female immigrants—accounting for more than one-quarter of all foreign-born females—more than two-fifths of female immigrants come from countries other than those in the top ten.  Female immigrants from Cuba and Canada have been here the longest and tend to be the oldest.  At the other extreme, female immigrants from India, China, and Mexico have been here the shortest amount of time, while those from Mexico and India are the youngest.  Nearly three-quarters of immigrant women from Vietnam are naturalized U.S. citizens, followed closely by those from the Philippines.  Immigrant women from the Philippines are also the most likely to be in the labor force and the least likely to be in poverty.  However, immigrant women from India rank the highest in terms of educational attainment, median income, and likelihood of employment in management and professional occupations.  Both the labor-force participation rates and the educational attainment of immigrant women in the United States increased markedly between 2000 and 2008 for all top ten countries of origin.  As these facts and figures illustrate, immigrant women play a diverse array of roles in the U.S. economy and society.
