The New North Carolinians: The Economic Impact of the Hispanic and Immigrant Population in North Carolina by Stephen J. Appold University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill and James H. Johnson Jr. , University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill - Management-Strategy Area February 10, 2014

Abstract: Over the last several decades, the movement of people into North Carolina has been so large and so pervasive that we call them, collectively, the “new” North Carolinians. Some of the new North Carolinians are immigrants, but most are “domestic imports.” The new North Carolinians are changing the character of the state’s population but even as they do so, the new North Carolinians often reaffirm and strengthen traditional North Carolina ways of life. This paper reviews the context in which the migration has taken place, describes the new North Carolinians, assesses their impact on the state’s economy, and explores policy options for long-term labor supply.
