September 18, 2020

New American Economy 2020 NAE Cities Index assesses the largest 100 cities on how effectively they are integrating immigrants. This year’s top 10 includes:

1. Chula Vista, CA
2. Jersey City, NJ
3. New York, NY
4. Chicago, IL
5. Baltimore, MD
6. Newark, NJ
7. Detroit, MI and San Francisco, CA (tie)
9. Atlanta, GA and San Jose, CA (tie)

The 2020 Index also shows that cities in battleground states (like Raleigh, NC; Las Vegas, NV; Glendale, AZ; Atlanta, GA; and St. Paul, MN), as well as Republican-led cities (like Arlington, TX; Aurora, CO; and Tulsa, OK) are among the top 10 cities whose scores improved most since last year’s Cities Index was released, indicating that they are quickly becoming more welcoming to immigrants.

Immigration is vital to the long-term prosperity of American cities and the U.S. economy. The NAE Cities Index systematically evaluates immigrant integration by measuring local policies and socioeconomic outcomes across the 100 largest cities in the United States. The Index tracks where each city stands in its integration efforts in order to provide insight on how local communities can maximize the potential of their immigrant populations for the well-being of all residents.
