Local Immigrant Population*

3000

*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:

Malay. English is widely learned as a second language.

Notes:

Malaysian immigration to the United States started principally in the 1970’s, which is relatively recent compared to other nationalities.  In terms of numbers, King County is among the top 10 counties in the US for Malaysians.  Today in Seattle, you can find some excellent Malaysian restaurants.  Local Malay families, the tech and aviation industries, along with universities in WA, continue to draw Malays here.  There are indications that Malays may be less prone to live in pocket communities with other Malays.  More research is required for next update.
