Where Migrants Live

An interactive feature from The Washington Post maps out where migrants live across the United States, highlighting key trends and demographic shifts. Data show that while immigrants are very highly concentrated within traditional urban centers, they increasingly reside in smaller towns and rural areas—trends representing more fundamental changes in migration patterns. Dispersion of migrant populations underscores their integral contribution to different communities both economically and culturally.

The map and the accompanying analysis shed light on how migrants adapt to and settle into different regions with challenges and opportunities. It calls for facilitating policies and programs for support of their integration, making the right to education, health care, and employment accessible to them. Though difficult, this understanding of where and how migrants live will equip policymakers and community leaders with the proper approach to effectively support the process of their inclusion and maximize their positive impact on the societies involved.
