Description:  This report offers a profile of Worcester’s foreign-born population and points out their unique challenges and contributions to the city. It utilizes data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 5-year 2009-2013 American Community Survey (ACS) and Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS). In order to provide a broader context for the profile, qualitative interviews with four Worcester based service providers were conducted. The report also provides an analysis of the impact the children of the foreign-born have on the public education system.
