Project Description
Our team focused on answering the question of how the population of immigrants shifted over time, and how rural economies are boosted and sustained by immigrant employees. We focused on looking at four rural counties: Eagle, Pitkin, San Miguel, and Yuma to see what percentage of immigrants live there, what percentage are in the work force, and what industries they are in.
