Census 2010: New Mexico is the Most Latino State, North Dakota is the Least

Census results are being released today, along with the totals for the Latino population growth! The Census bureau has been sharing the results on a state-by-state basis, but today will be our first real look at what the numbers mean on a larger national scale.

So far, we know that the most Latino state in the union is New Mexico, with 46.3 percent of their entire state's population identifying as Latino or Hispanic. North Dakota clocked in as the least Latino state—only 2 percent of the total population of the state is Hispanic or Latino. But, no matter how small the group, every single state in the country saw an increase in its Latino population.
