With President Donald Trump’s immigration-policy reform actions likely to affect state economies, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2017’s Economic Impact of Immigration by State.
In order to determine which states benefit most from immigration, the website’s analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 18 key metrics, ranging from “median household income of foreign-born population” to “jobs generated by immigrant-owned businesses as a share of total jobs.”
According to the analysis, Hawaii ranks 10th in the country, and specifically, third in percentage of jobs generated by immigrant-owned businesses out of total jobs.
The others most impacted that rank above Hawaii are, from one to 10, California, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, the District of Columbia, Connecticut, Delaware, Washington and Illinois.
