Hispanic Population by Specific Origin by ZIP Code

.. the Hispanic population is diverse … here we share information about data and tools that can be used to examine the Hispanic population by specific origin by ZIP code. The Hispanic or Latino population group is comprised of many specific origin subgroups. The specific origin subgroups are often associated with different regions of the world. Many specific origin subgroups tend to cluster by location within the U.S. both as a result of the geography of emigration (e.g., Mexico to Texas) and association with where same subgroup emigrants have settled (e.g., Cuba to New York). This section provides insights into how the Hispanic specific origin subgroups are distributed across the U.S. by ZIP Code Area. Tools are provided to analyze geographic and subgroup patterns of interest. For more details and to access interactive table see related Web section.
