Census Data Breakdown from the Texas Tribune

Feb 17, 2011

Our good friends and political reporting partners, The Texas Tribune, have started breaking down the U.S. Census data released today.  

The new numbers show the Hispanic population in Texas increased by 42 percent since 2000, and the group now makes up 38 percent of the population.

Texas’ population is now 25,145,561. That's a 4,293,741 increase from 2000’s figure, a 20.6 percent change.

Be sure to check out the maps and fancy graphs they have to explain what all the numbers mean.
