Population change for Hispanics, 2000-2010

A map of the U.S. showing the change in Hispanic population, between years 2000 to 2010.

Hispanic populations more than doubled in most nonmetro counties in the South and in many otherwise slow-growing or declining sections of the Nation's Heartland. Much of this growth is fueled by demand for low-skill food-processing and manufacturing workers, but expanding service-sector jobs are also attracting Hispanics into many high-amenity areas in the West and elsewhere. This map can be found in the Atlas of Rural and Small Town America on the ERS website, updated June 29, 2011.
