Hispanic populations rising sharply!

The U.S. Census Bureau is gradually releasing demographic data from its 2010 survey, and the first batch of state-level specifics show Hispanic populations rising sharply.
Hispanic populations have grown, both by percentage of states’ total populations and by raw numbers, in each of the eight states for which Hispanic-origin data have been released. In some cases, Hispanic populations nearly doubled.
• Arkansas: 6.4 percent (186,050), up from 3.2 percent (2,586,534) in 2000
• Indiana: 6 percent (389,707), up from 3.5 percent (214,536) in 2000
• Iowa: 5 percent (151,544), up from 2.8 percent (82,473) in 2000
• Louisiana: 4.2 percent (192,560), up from 2.4 percent (77,083) in 2000
• Maryland: 8.2 percent (470,632), up from 4.3 percent (227,916) in 2000
• Mississippi: 2.7 percent (81,481), up from 1.4 percent (39,569) in 2000
• New Jersey: 17.7 percent (1,555,144), up from 13.3 percent (1,117,191) in 2000
• Vermont: 1.5 percent (9,208), up from 0.9 percent (5,504) in 2000
The Census Bureau will release the rest of its state-level demographic data over the next month and a half, after which it will be used for redistricting as new congressional and state-legislative district lines are drawn. Texas will be included in the next batch.
