Greater Boston's Immigrants from Brazil
The Immigrant Learning Center, with our partner the Institute for Immigration Research at George Mason University, has compiled fact sheets to answer the most pressing questions about the top ten immigrant populations in the Greater Boston area. The reports explore the most common occupations, educational backgrounds, median income and more for each immigrant population.
Greater Boston has one of the highest concentrations of immigrants from Brazil in the U.S., alongside New York City and Miami. Immigrants from Brazil make up the fifth largest immigrant group after, in order, China, Dominican Republic, India and Haiti and ahead of El Salvador, Vietnam, Canada, Guatemala and Cape Verde. Data from 2017.
