Almost Half of Hispanic Population Concentrated in Ten Metropolitan Areas
Coinciding with National Hispanic Heritage Month, the Pew Hispanic Center released a report detailing the characteristics of 60 of the largest metropolitan areas by Hispanic population. Using the 2010 American Community Survey, the report found that 45% of the Hispanic population in the United States is concentrated in just 10 metropolitan areas. The 5.7 million Hispanics in the Los Angeles-Long Beach area account for more than 1 in every 10 Hispanics in the United States, with the New York-Northeastern New Jersey population containing 8% of the nation's Hispanic Population.
The report goes on to say that in Miami and San Antonio, Hispanics make up over half of the population, and that the same is the case in eleven more of the sixty largest metropolitan areas by Hispanic population. Included in the report is a breakdown of population by Hispanic origin group, with the largest origin group being Mexican-Americans at 65%. The full report, as well as an interactive map, can be found here.
