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:

Nepali is the official language of Nepal. English is taught widely in schools as a second language.

Notes:

It’s likely that Nepali immigration to the Pacific NW started with relationships built in Nepal by local mountain climbers.  The number of Nepalis here has grown sufficiently to support a vibrant local community organizations and places of worship.  There are even restaurants in Seattle with names like Annapurna and Sherpa House.  To connect with Nepal in Seattle, check out the Nepal Seattle Society.
