"Hispanics in Virgina" - New Report from UVA's Weldon Cooper Center
U.Va. Demographers Find Virginia's Hispanic Population is Diverse, Growing Rapidly

May 10, 2011 Hispanics are the fastest-growing and second-largest minority group in Virginia,
according to a new report released today by demographers at the University of Virginia's Weldon
Cooper Center for Public Service.

The report, "Hispanics in Virginia," presents analysis of the latest 2010 Census and 2009
American Community Survey data and includes these findings:

The Hispanic population in Virginia almost doubled in the past 10 years.
More than half of Virginia's Hispanics were born in the United States; most are under age
Hispanics have a high labor force participation rate.

"Hispanics represent a growing proportion of Virginia's population and contribute significantly
to the increasing diversity of the commonwealth," Qian Cai, director of the Cooper Center's
Demographics & Workforce Group, said. "One in every three new Virginia residents in the last
10 years was Hispanic."

The report explores demographic characteristics; citizenship and immigration; family and
personal life; education and language; employment and economic well-being; and geographic
location of Hispanics living in Virginia. While Hispanics are found in all localities in Virginia,
they, like the population overall, are concentrated in Virginias major metropolitan areas. The
report also found that Hispanic households are more likely than non-Hispanic households to
contain young children and two or more families.
