Coming to Worcester: The city’s immigrant population has shifted in the last decade

Grant Welker, “Coming to Worcester: The city’s immigrant population has shifted in the last decade,” Worcester Business Journal, November 2018. From the article: “For a century starting in the 1870s, immigrants moving into Worcester almost exclusively came from Europe and North America. In the early days, they were largely from Ireland – which made up an overwhelming 70 percent of all Worcester foreign-born residents 150 years ago – followed by Canada and England. It’s much different today.”
