Immigrants and WIOA Services: Comparison of Sociodemographic Characteristics of Native- and Foreign-Born Adults in the United States

These fact sheets from the Migration Policy Institute focus on the ways WIOA can play a critical role in supporting the upward mobility of the foreign born in the U.S. workforce. With a focus on the 20 states and 25 counties (plus New York City) that have the largest immigrant populations, the fact sheets cover key characteristics of foreign-born and native-born residents and provide information relevant to understanding needs for adult education and workforce training services.
