Statistic of the Month
The Nebraska Hispanic/Latino population increased by 77% from 2000 to 2010, the fastest growth of any racial/ethnic group. That percent change was half of the 155% increase during the 1990s. However, percent changes are influenced by the starting value and when that base is small, larger percent changes occur. In such cases with fast growing populations, it helps to evaluate the numeric growth, which was about a 57,500 Hispanic person increase in the 90s versus a larger 73,000 person gain in the 2000s.
