Working for a Better Life: A profile of immigrants in the New York state economy
What role do immigrants play in the New York State economy? In 2006, they added $229 billion in economic activity--representing fully 22.4 percent of the state's gross domestic product. This major report also examines what countries immigrants come from, where they work and how well they are doing. The report includes detailed analysis of the role of immigrant workers and families in three distinct regional economies: New York City, the downstate suburbs and upstate New York.
