The most underrated U.S. cities for immigrants

To find out which of America’s midsize cities make the best homes for immigrants, Preply analyzed U.S. Census data from over 250 cities.

They ranked cities on 4 key measures based on the opportunities they offer immigrants:

  1. Foreign-born population size.
  2. Naturalization rate.
  3. The unemployment rate of the foreign-born population.
  4. The median income of the foreign-born population. 

Key findings:

  • The three most underrated metropolitan areas for immigrants are (1) Honolulu, Hawaii; (2) Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Venture, CA: and  (3) Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown, NY.
  • Florida boasts five of the top 25 midsize cities for immigrants.
  • Portland, Oregon, Austin, Texas, and Stockton, California, are the most promising cities for immigrants over the past decade. 


Here is the report.
