From the Paper:

"New England's racial and ethnic profile is changing rapidly. African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans represented more than 14 percent of the region's 18- to-24-year-olds in 1990, which is up from eight percent a decade earlier. In 1996, more than 915,000 immigrants were admitted to the United States, and about 40,000 said they intended to settle in New England. New England has experienced an economic boom because of a high-tech economy fueled by foreign-born scientific talent, much as earlier waves of foreign immigrants powered the region's industrial growth and enriched its political life. Indeed, foreign-born workers accounted for 86 percent of then New England labor force growth from 1986 to 1996, compared with 35 percent nationally ("The state of New England: A fact sheet," 1999).
