A look at the foreign-born population of Connecticut

With the recent block of President Trump’s executive order temporarily barring citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the country and his talk of building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, The Day looked at Census data to analyze the foreign-born population in Connecticut.

According to the data, the foreign-born population (including citizen and non-citizen) makes up 13.9% of the total population or about half a million people statewide. People from Latin America make up 42% of the foreign-born population or 5.9% of the state’s total population.

Below you’ll see a breakdown of the foreign-born population and maps showing the town-by-town make up of the foreign-born population.
