Local Immigrant Population*

1000

*Immigrant Population is an estimated sum of the number of naturalized Americans from this country and citizens from this country living in the Seattle Metro Area under any sort of immigration visa.  It does not count the American offspring or descendants of immigrants from this country, which can go back many generations and account for large numbers of people.  1,000 is the default number when we don’t have a better count.

Languages:

Danish and English.

Notes:

If good things come from small packages, then Danes in the Pacific NW are certainly an example!  Danes have been contributing to Seattle’s economy and society for so long that most local Danes are descendants of past immigrants.  Nevertheless, the culture and community bonds remain tight with many local cultural and social organizations where Danes celebrate and come together.  The tech boom has added more Danish immigrants since the turn of this century, bringing a younger generation of potentially new Americans from Denmark.

 

Denmark organizes its representation in America intentionally with an outsized influence as a result. There are over 30 honorary consuls in the Americas and innovation centers in both Silicon Valley and Boston.
