HISPANIC POPULATION SURGES

NEW YORK - The latest 2010 U.S. Census data reveals a steady growth momentum in the Hispanic population across the United States, according to statistics just released for Arizona, Connecticut, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Idaho and Wisconsin. According to the figures:

  • Hispanics contributed 48 percent of the population growth in Arizona. 1 out of every 2 individuals added to ArizonaÂ’s population in the last decade is of Hispanic origin.
  • The Hispanic population in Connecticut grew nearly 50 percent in the last 10 years with Latinos accounting for 61 percent of the minority growth in the state.
  • In Ohio, Hispanics are growing faster than any other demographic in the state. In fact, the Hispanic population grew 63 percent since Census 2000.
  • The Hispanic population in Pennsylvania grew more than 82 percent in the last 10 years.
  • In Idaho, the Hispanic population grew 73 percent since Census 2000.
  • Hispanics contributed 44 percent of the overall growth in Wisconsin. The Hispanic population in the state grew 74 percent in the last decade.
  • “The latest state-by-state U.S. Census figures continue to show the incredible double-digit growth the Hispanic population is fueling in states across our country,” said Elizabeth Ellers, executive vice president, Corporate Research, Univision Communications Inc.

Based on the 33 states released thus far by Census:

  • Hispanic population growth is exceeding the most recent Census estimates by four percent.
  • Nearly 39 million Hispanics in the 33 states released as of 3-10-11.
  • Hispanics contributed 58 percent of the overall population growth in those states.
  • From Census 2000-2010 the Hispanic population in these states grew by nearly 43 percent.
  • Hispanics are growing four times faster than the total population.

The Hispanic population is less concentrated than a decade ago. In 2000, 65 percent of the Hispanic population residing in the 33 states released by Census resided either in California or Texas. By 2010, 61 percent of Hispanics reside either in Texas or California.
