Immigrant Data for NY23rd


diversity-made-simple-HALCXY-quoteThe following information is from the New American Economy. Besides the data about each Congressional District there are many data driven reports explaining the effects immigrants have on different industries and geographical areas. 


Immigrants and the economy in:

New York District 23 

  • Immigrant Residents: 27,046 
  • Immigrant Share of Population: 3.8% 
  • Immigrant Taxes Paid (2014): $229.4M 
  • Immigrant Spending Power (2014) :$560.1M 
  • Immigrant Entrepreneurs: 653 
  • Immigrant Share Ranking 362 of 435


    Similar to the United States as a whole, immigrants in most districts are more likely to be of working age—defined as being between the ages of 25 and 64—than the native-born population. This allows them to contribute to U.S. entitlement programs and also assume roles helping seniors as they age.

  • Age Group Foreign-Born Population Share Native-Born Population Share
    0-24 30.3% 33.8%
    25-64 54.4% 50.3%
    65+ 15.3% 15.9%

Here are some suggestions of facts that Rep. Reed might want to know about. Feel free to share them any way you want:

    I wondered about the high percentage of graduate degrees in NY-23, so I checked the census data for more insight.

    NY-23 Tompkins County
    Native Foreign Native Foreign
    Grad. Deg. 11.1% 37.2% 25.5% 55.3%

    As I suspected, the data for NY-23 is distorted by a very high percentage of persons, particularly foreign born persons, with graduate degrees in Tompkins County. Data for other NY-23 counties is unavailable, presumably due to inadequate sample size.

    I hope our county Democratic committees and other organizations are working to increase the number of registered immigrant voters across the district. They could be vital to flipping the district.
