Report on Hispanic Growth from U.S. Census Bureau
"More than half of the growth in the total population of the United States between 2000 and 2010 was due to the increase in the Hispanic population." -- Those words come from a very helpful report by the U.S. Census Bureau. It includes this map that shows counties of greatest growth for the U.S. Hispanic/Latino population. Among other uses, this report and especially this map (from page 12 of the Census report), is an excellent tool for church planting, church extension, and evangelism.
