DEMOGRAPHIC H/T

The Next America features example of series, videos, interactives, and other online elements that help shape our understanding of changing demographics.

We welcome suggestions on projects worth examining more closely, providing a tip of the hat (or in Internet parlance h/t) to standout sites, galleries, stories or more.

Pew Research Hispanic Center has released an updated statistical portrait of the U.S. Hispanic population based on 2011 data from the American Community Survey.

In conjunction with the data-heavy tabulations, the center has rolled out a series of infographics illustrating various demographic details, including population changes, regional concentration, poverty rates, and more.

Since 2000, the Hispanic population has grown 48 percent to 51.9 million in 2011, making up 17 percent of the country’s total population. The majority of the Hispanic population was born in the U.S., with just more than one-third born in a foreign country.

 

Two-thirds of the Hispanic population have roots in Mexico and are also concentrated in just five states. California and Texas boast upward of a combined 47 percent of the Hispanic population alone.

Based on Pew tabulations, Hispanics are less likely to own a home than other demographic groups, are less likely than others to have health insurance, and are in households more likely to receive food stamps than others.

However, the news isn’t all bad: More Hispanics have high school diplomas than they did in 2000; and the rate of college enrollment has been rising as well, with 33 percent of Hispanics between the ages of 18 and 24 enrolled in some postsecondary program.

Check out the infographic series here.
