Greater Boston's Immigrants from Dominican Republic
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.
The number of immigrants from the Dominican Republic has tripled since 1990 making them the fifth-largest Spanish-speaking population living in the United States. Immigrants from the Dominican Republic form the second-largest immigrant group in Greater Boston after China and ahead of, in order, India, Haiti, Brazil, El Salvador, Vietnam, Canada, Guatemala and Cape Verde. Data from 2017.
