Attention, radio format-deciders: The latest 2010 U.S. Census data predictably reveals considerable growth of the Hispanic population across the U.S. UNIVISION examined the latest data release -- which analyzes Hispanic population in ARIZONA, CONNECTICUT, OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA, IDAHO and WISCONSIN -- and came up with the following conclusions:
* Hispanics contributed 48% of the population growth in ARIZONA. Half of the people who added to THE state’s population in the last decade is of Hispanic origin.
* The Hispanic population in CONNECTICUT grew nearly 50% in the last 10 years with Latinos accounting for 61% of the minority growth in the state.
* In OHIO, the Hispanic population grew 63% since Census 2000 -- the fastest growth rate in the entire country.
* The Hispanic population in PENNSYLVANIA grew more than 82% in the last 10 years.
* In IDAHO, the Hispanic population grew 73% since Census 2000.
* Hispanics contributed 44% of the overall growth in WISCONSIN; the number of Hispanics in the state grew 74% in the last decade.
"The latest state-by-state U.S. Census figures continue to show the incredible double-digit growth the Hispanic population is fueling in states across our country," UNIVISION EVP/Corporate Research ELIZABETH ELLERS said.
The U.S. Census is expected to release state by state information through MARCH 2011.
