28% of workers in New Jersey are immigrants.

They make up 20% of the entire population but more of them are of working age than the bob-immigrant population. Such were the findings of a recent Rutgers University study, reported by the Associated Press.
Immigrants occupy both ends of the workforce. 40% of advance degree holding workers are foreign-born. New Jersey currently ranks third in the nation, behind only Hawaii and California, in the percentage of immigrants to total population.
The study, “Destination New Jersey: How Immigrants Benefit the State Economy, is available here.
