This survey explores the experiences of four major immigrant groups in the Twin Cities area. Topics include reasons for leaving home, reasons for coming to the United States and Minnesota, English language ability, treatment by Americans, views about cultural identity and Americanization, children and schools, religious identification, types of employment, stress factors, and sources of news and information. This study also demonstrates a workable method for a random-sample, multilingual, large-scale survey of immigrants. If you wish to conduct your own statistical analysis on the data, we have made it available through the Immigration History Research Center at: http://www.ihrc.umn.edu/research/wilder/index.htm
