Posted by Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians on June 23, 2014

Choosing Philadelphia draws on the results of surveys and interviews with 364 respondents from 74 countries.

Check out the full 44-page report (pdf), and please let us know what you think.

For a shorter read, you can see slides with selected findings.
