Immigrants in Connecticut
Connecticut has a sizable community of immigrants, much of which hails from India and Poland. Nearly 15 percent of the state’s population was born in another country, and over 14 percent of residents are native-born Americans who have at least one immigrant parent. Immigrants support Connecticut’s economy across sectors, comprising more than 25 percent of all computer and math sciences employees and one third of residents working in building and grounds cleaning and maintenance. As workers, business owners, taxpayers, and neighbors, immigrants are an integral part of Connecticut’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.
