COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS - IMMIGRATION
According to a report released in 2016 by the New
American Economy, in 2014, there were more than 23,000
foreign-born people in Lancaster County who represented
4.4 % of the population but 5.3% of the employed labor
force. Those individuals contributed $1.3 billion to the
County's economy; and, compared to the native population,
had higher levels of education and were more likely to be
self-employed.
In 2016, the Chamber commissioned a study from New
American Economy highlighting the economic and
demographic contributions of immigrants in the County. In
short, it showed that our immigrant residents have an impact
on the local economy through their high rates of workforce
participation, large tax contributions and spending.
During our latest Prosperity Indicator Community
Conversations local business and community leaders
addressed how employers can better incorporate
immigrants into their workforce, the barriers to entry for
immigrants in starting a business, how ag employers recruit
and retain their immigrant labor force, and much more. To
learn more about the report and what companies are doing
to address immigration locally, see p40.

After decades of caring
for others, Dr. Wert
suddenly found himself
on the receiving end of
treatment. Stage four
cancer had robbed his
body of the strength
he needed to continue
helping impoverished
countries receive proper
medical care. Lancaster
Cancer Center gave Dr.
Wert his life back so he
could return to helping
those in need.

Proud to be the longest-running independent,
community-based oncology/hematology practice
in Lancaster County.
