Great infographics shared by the U.S. Census comparing 1940 to 2010. More graphics via the link, but I wanted to highlight the two below. First, most populated states then and now correlate with the growth of Latinos in California, Texas, Florida, the Northeast, and to some extent, Illinois. Secondly, Latinos were not even on the radar in 1940, likely interned in the “Other” category. As of 2010, a whopping 16.3% of the U.S. population.
Latinos are not an “Other” anymore.
