Data was collected from the 50 states and the Capital of the United States of America in 2017 for evaluation. The main analysis investigates whether a state’s median household income is positively correlated with the state’s immigration. While a simple linear model showed a positive correlation. Subsequent models did not show the same relationship between a state’s immigration and a state’s income, and instead showed state immigration to be positively related to the presence of Fortune 500 Companies and Top 100 Universities. Future investigation should go into explaining the negative relationship.
