Interesting Info: Hispanic Origin Profiles
Among the 50.7 million U.S. Hispanics, nearly two-thirds (65%), or 33 million, self-identify as being of Mexican origin, according to new statistical profiles from the Pew Hispanic Center.
No other Hispanic subgroup rivals the size of the Mexican-origin population.
Puerto Ricans, the nation’s second largest Hispanic origin group, make up just 9% of the total Hispanic population in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Overall, the 10 largest Hispanic origin groups—Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Salvadorans, Dominicans, Guatemalans, Colombians, Hondurans, Ecuadorians and Peruvians—make up 92% of the U.S. Hispanic population.
Six Hispanic origin groups have populations greater than 1 million.
