New Report Shows How Immigrants have Grown Economy, Revitalized Population in Dayton
On July 8, the Partnership for a New American Economy and Welcome Dayton released new research highlighting the economic impact of attracting and retaining foreign-born residents in Dayton. New Americans are helping to reverse Dayton’s population decline. They also wield considerable economic weight: new Americans in Dayton are more than twice as likely to be entrepreneurs as the native-born. Other Ohio cities facing population decline could potentially benefit from a similar outcome to Dayton.
