What Immigration Means to Idaho (Infographic)
Idaho has a small but growing immigrant population. While only 6 percent of the state’s residents are immigrants, they represent a greater share of the workforce. Idaho’s farming and fishing industry—one of the state’s top economic drivers—benefits from immigrants who make up over 40 percent of its labor force. As workers, business owners, taxpayers, and neighbors, immigrants are an integral part of Idaho’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.
