New data recently released by NAFSA: Association of International Educators indicate that the more than one million international students studying at U.S. colleges and universities during the 2016-17 academic year contributed $36.9 billion to the U.S. economy, while at the same time supporting more than 450,000 jobs. These numbers represent a 12.4% increase in job support and creation and a 12.5% increase in dollars contributed to the economy compared to the previous academic year.
