336,500 Hispanics (2% 10-year increase)

The new FactsUSA 2019 Annual Report said that Hispanics are 18% of the U.S. population, up from 8% in 1990.
“The average American today looks and lives differently than they did 30 years ago. Today, 61% of the population is nonHispanic White, down from 76% in 1990. Meanwhile, the Hispanic and Asian populations have doubled as a percentage of the total over that time,” said FactsUSA.
The report also looked at all prison populations, including state and local jails, and found a similar trend to the one in the federal report, with white and black prisoner populations shrinking.
And, just as Justice had, FactsUSA logged an increase in the Hispanic prison population, to 23% in 2016, up from 16% in 2000.
“In 2016, Blacks made up 27% of all arrests and 33% of all prisoners while only making up 12% of the total population. Hispanics, meanwhile, constituted 18% of all arrests and 23% of all prisoners, while making up 18% of the total population,” said FactsUSA, the annual nonpartisan report on U.S. facts and figures.
