The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, has updated its interactive maps and database on the Latino population in the nation’s more than 3,100 counties. The maps show the Latino population and share in U.S. counties for 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2009 and how its size and distribution across counties has changed since 1980. The population data are derived from the decennial censuses and the Census Bureau’s population estimates program. Latino population data by county for 1990, 2000 and 2009 may also be downloaded from the Pew Hispanic Center’s website.
Accompanying the county interactive maps and database are updated demographic and economic profiles of the Hispanic and non-Hispanic populations in the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. These profiles are based on Pew Hispanic Center analyses of the 2009 American Community Survey.
The interactive maps, county Latino population data and state demographic profiles are available at the Pew Hispanic Center’s website, http://www.pewhispanic.org.
