Hispanic Population Doubles In Some States

 NEW YORK  - The Census Bureau just released 2010 state results for Maryland, Arkansas, Iowa, Indiana and Vermont and Hispanics account for double-digit growth in each state. According to the data released:

 

  • The Hispanic population in Maryland doubled and is growing faster than anticipated based on the most recent Census estimates, accounting for 40% of the minority growth in the state.

  • In Arkansas, the Hispanic population more than doubled with Hispanics driving 41% of the overall growth in the state. Among those under 18, Hispanics represent 83% of the minority growth.  

  • Hispanics contributed 53% of minority growth in Iowa, while the non-Hispanic white population shrank.

  • Hispanics in Indiana are growing faster than any other demographic group in the state and account for 43% of the population growth – nearly 1 out of every 2 people added to the state in the last decade is of Hispanic origin.

·         In Vermont, Hispanics are driving 21 % of the growth in the state.

 

“In the new data released for Maryland, Arkansas, Iowa, Indiana and Vermont, Hispanic growth is outpacing non-Hispanic growth in each state by significant double-digit margins. These numbers speak to the growth of Hispanics nationwide, not only in select states," said Elizabeth Ellers, executive vice president Corporate Research, Univision Communications Inc.
