Hispanics in the United States

map of the united states

Almost 100% of the people I have seen in the buildings are of Hispanic origin, there is almost always a Honduran, many Mexicans and it is not surprising that most do not have documents. Speaking of the subject with my instructor, for being involved he has let me investigate how many Hispanics there are in the United States, to follow up on the culture shock that this has in the construction area.


Most constructions are made with Hispanics, of course gringo style. Large numbers of immigrants live in old neighborhoods, it is said that the presence of these influences the trends of added value to be implemented cultural practices that Americans do not accept. After searching the Internet I have found Pew Hispanic a page dedicated to maintaining information related to the immigration of Hispanics to the United States. The migration map has caught my attention, which although it is built in Flash, shows the growth that Hispanics have had in the different districts in each state in four stages: 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2007.

The page has much more data than its top menu appears, there are statistics, profiles of immigrants, demographic studies by state and country of origin. I recommend it.

To give an example, if you want to know the countries with more Hispanics in the United States, including Spain, this is the result:

No. Country Location Percentage
1 Mexico 29,189,334 64.3
2 Puerto Rico 4,114,701 9.1
3 All Other Hispanics 2,880,536 6.3
4 Cuba 1,608,835 3.5
5 El Salvador 1,473,482 3.2
6 Dominican Republic 1,198,849 2.6
7 Guatemala 859,815 1.9
8 Colombia 797,195 1.8
9 Honduras 527,154 1.2
10 Ecuador 523,108 1.2
11 Peru 470,519 1.0
12 Spain 353,008 0.8
13 Nicaragua 306,438 0.7
14 Argentina 194,511 0.4
15 Venezuela 174,976 0.4
16 Panama 138,203 0.3
17 Costa Rica 115,960 0.3
18 Other Central America 111,513 0.2
19 Chile 111,461 0.2
20 Bolivia 82,434 0.2
21 Other South America 77,898 0.2
22 Uruguay 48,234 0.1
23 Paraguay 20,432 0.0

Some data seems low to me, but it is an important benchmark. It also has a 3-Dimensional map showing extremes like Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Houston.
