The Census Bureau found that the foreign-born population in St. Louis rose by 5,640 people between 2017 and 2018. At a growth rate of 4.1%, this gives St. Louis the third fastest-growing immigrant population, after Riverside California and Seattle, Washington. Riverside increased by 4.8% and Seattle by 4.6%.
