What impact immigrants have on local society and how well they integrate into it are two issues that are central to the debate on national immigration. NAE City Index It is the first comprehensive way to assess these issues and understand how immigrants and target communities interact.

Top rated cities in NAE Index subdivided into three profiles:

1. Cities that are starting to recover after years of diversion of personnel and population, which resulted in a decline in their economic stability (for example, Newark, New Jersey, or Baltimore, Maryland). Immigrants in these cities bring much-needed skills and an entrepreneurial spirit that can help create a stable and educated workforce, encourage the creation of new businesses, fill vacant housing and expand local tax bases. In these cities, the gap between immigrants and those born in the United States is much smaller than in the rest of the country, in terms of indicators such as poverty, education and entrepreneurship.

2. Cities that represent the focus of immigrants - for example, New York, NY, and San Francisco, California. These cities have succeeded in creating an enabling environment with strong policies aimed at integrating and providing access to diverse information and urban services. Inclusive policies help these cities focus on the creative class and highly qualified businesses. But some of them do not yet demonstrate the same high rates of access to housing or income equality.

3. Cities that become new entry gates for immigrants - for example, Atlanta, Georgia, and Greensboro, North Carolina. This is one of the fastest growing places in the country. In these cities, immigrants and newcomers to the United States help shape the diverse workforce needed to continue to grow and attract new businesses. These cities were highly rated for socio-economic indicators, such as employment opportunities at all skill levels, affordable and high-quality housing, and educational opportunities.

The NAE City Index estimates each city based on a unique parameter 51, including accessibility of language services and support for immigrant entrepreneurs, socio-economic outcomes such as labor force involvement and housing levels. Overall scores range from 1 to 5 (5 is the highest) and give an idea of ​​how well cities integrate new people in America. The 2018 year was the first for the NAE City Index, which will be updated annually to track progress.

Key results:

Large traditional gateways for immigrants top the policy category in the Index. San Francisco and Los Angeles, California; New York, NY; Chicago, Illinois; Seattle, Washington - These cities rank in the top five thanks to their strong support for immigrants. Each city scores excellent in government and legal support, and each has a local office that works to integrate immigrants (such as the Office of Immigrant Affairs).

Smaller, more accessible cities took first place in the category of socio-economic results. St. Petersburg, Florida; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Newark, New Jersey; Chula Vista, California; Henderson, Nevada—each with the smallest third of Index cities by population—occupied the top five spots. These cities have seen particularly strong gains in vitality, showing smaller gaps in homeownership, health insurance, and education rates between immigrants and the U.S.-born.

TOP-25 Index cities attract a larger percentage of highly skilled immigrants and US residents, which makes them more competitive for business and economic investment. In these 25 cities, the share of graduates from higher education institutions among immigrants (15,9%) and those born in the USA (14,5%) is higher than in the whole country (12,8% and 12,9%, respectively).

TOP-25 Index Cities best suited to immigrant entrepreneurs and US born, which makes them more likely to create jobs. On average, American entrepreneurs living in the best cities of 25 earn $ 1000 more than a year more than businessmen in other Index cities, and immigrant entrepreneurs get more than $ 100 more than other cities in the country. In addition, in these cities the pace of entrepreneurship development is also higher (8,1% versus 7,9%) than the national average.

25 best cities also demonstrate greater justice between immigrants and US-born in key indicators of quality of life. In terms of homeownership, health insurance, and poverty, there are minor gaps in these cities compared to other places in America. There are also higher rates of general health insurance (90,1% and 75,8%, respectively) compared with residents of other US cities (89,0% and 70,2%, respectively).

Among the cities with the highest rating attracting immigrants is the key to population growth. Newark, New Jersey, and Baltimore, Maryland, which exceed the 2018 index of the year, showed a decrease in population and labor from the 2010 year, but these figures stabilized due to immigrant arrivals. Similarly, in 18 of the 20 of the largest cities in the Index, population growth was observed from 2010 to 2017 year.

Exist regional trends regarding how hospitable and inclusive cities are to immigrants. Northeast (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont) and the Pacific Ocean (Alabama, California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington) have the highest total scores and the most welcoming policy. While the region of the central South (Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas) demonstrate low overall scores and the most unfriendly policies.
