New research from New American Economy (NAE) shows that immigrants in Warren County, KY contributed $564.3 million to the county’s GDP in 2016 and paid $43 million in federal taxes and $21.1 million in state and local taxes. The report, New Americans in Warren County, was prepared in partnership with the City of Bowling Green, the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce, and the South Central Workforce Development Board.

In addition to their financial contributions, our report shows the role immigrants plays in the local labor force and as contributors to the county’s recent growth in population. Though they account for 9.3 percent of the county’s population, immigrants represent 10.7 percent of the county’s working-age population and 10.3 percent of the employed labor force. The report also shows that immigrants were responsible for nearly a third of total population growth in Warren County from 2011 to 2016.
