Local Immigrant Population*

2000

*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:

Dutch and English.

Notes:

At first blush, one might overlook the Dutch in Seattle.  The Dutch started settling in the farmlands surrounding Seattle in the 1800’s and have continued, building a broad-based legacy.  Looking to meet a Dutch person in Seattle?  If you work in tech, then it should not take long.  Otherwise, save yourself the transatlantic airfare and head for Lynden, WA.  It will give you a whole new perspective on the role and impact of the Dutch in the Pacific Northwest.
