A Portrait of New England’s Immigrants

Antoniya Owens, “A Portrait of New England’s Immigrants,” New England Public Policy Center Research Report, November 2008. “New England is home to 1.6 million immigrants. Their number is growing far faster than that of the native population. They are more likely than natives to be of working age. Moreover, they are better educated than immigrants nationwide, with more than three quarters having a high school diploma, and close to a third holding a bachelor’s degree. For all these reasons, immigrants contribute importantly to the growth of the region’s labor force.”
