Abstract or Summary
  • The settlement patterns of European immigrants arriving around the turn of the 20th Century have been described using the theory of spatial assimilation. Recent academic literature has called into question whether this theory is still relevant in describing the settlement patterns of recent non-European immigrant groups, but has not been addressed whether or not this theory is still effective in describing continued European immigration. This research evaluated US census data to determine that a Polish ethnic enclave in the metro region of Portland, Oregon does not exist. Additionally, the absence of the Polish enclave appears to have a positive impact on the acculturation and assimilation of the Polish immigrants in the study area.
