How Immigrants Boost the Economy
The New American Economy has mapped the contributions of immigrants in all 435 Congressional districts, the 55 largest U.S. metro areas and all 50 states. The map provides information on the tax contributions made by immigrant workers and data on their spending power and contributions to entrepreneurship and the general workforce.
If you select a location on the Map the Impact interactive map you can view details on the number of immigrant residents in the area and the amount of taxes paid by immigrants and their combined spending power.
For each area selected on the map you can also click-through to view more detailed information on the benefits that immigration provides at that location. This includes detailed demographic data about immigrant residents, their contributions to the different employment sectors and the amount of taxes paid by immigrants.
