This report examines the economic role of immigrants in the 25 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. The results are clear: immigrants contribute to the economy in direct relation to their share of the population. The economy of metro areas grows in tandem with immigrant share of the labor force. And, immigrants work across the occupational spectrum, from high-paying professional jobs to low-wage service employment. In the 25 largest metropolitan areas combined, immigrants make up 20% of the population and are responsible for 20% of economic output. Together, these metro areas comprise 42% of the total population of the country, 66% of all immigrants, and half of the country’s total GDP. Contents: Overview of immigrants in the 25 largest metro areas; Growth in immigrant share of labor force parallels; Immigrants contribute to the economy in proportion to their share of the population; Immigrants and U.S.-born workers share favorable earnings at the top of the occupational ladder but face difficulties at the bottom; Immigrants are playing an important role in unions, helping to improve pay and equalize earnings among workers doing the same jobs; An in-depth look at the five largest metro areas in the East; Appendices.
