With information on immigrant tax contributions, spending power, entrepreneurship, workforce, homeownership, demographics, voting power, and more, Map the Impact shows that the foreign-born are helping to grow the economy everywhere.Users can view the data by state, metro area, congressional district, or key industry, and also find hundreds of stories and videos featuring local leaders talking about why immigration matters to them.
“This data puts the economic power of America’s immigrants in stark relief,” said John Feinblatt, President of New American Economy. “Across the map, and in every industry, immigrants strengthen the economies of big cities and small towns alike.”

With many features, Map the Impact provides users a way to see how immigrants are contributing to their congressional district, check sector-specific information on how immigration impacts industries like Tech, Healthcare, and Agriculture, and share stats and graphics directly with elected officials via social media.
