The Providence-Warwick metro area, also known as The Creative Capital, is an eight country metropolitan area that extends between Rhode Island and Massachusetts, with Proovidence, RI as its anchor city.
Providence has seen steady increases in its population over the last several decades, and the primary reason for these increases is the explosion of the foreign-born population. This is due to the steady flow of European immigrants, and the massive influx of Hispanic immigrants, and the recent increase of Asian immigrants.
