Population Estimates Highlight Hispanics as Rapidly Growing Group, 
Says Census Bureau Director

The nation's Hispanic population totals about 30.0 million, a 35-percent gain over the 1990 total of 22.4 million, according to the latest estimates of the Department of Commerce's Census Bureau. Census Bureau Director Kenneth Prewitt said today that the new numbers reaffirm the fact that Hispanics are one of the nation's fastest-growing ethnic groups.

Prewitt noted that the data were released at the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from Sept 15 through Oct 15.

"Census 2000 represents a great opportunity for Hispanics to affirm their heritage," said Prewitt. "Hispanics should take pride in marking the box on the Census 2000 questionnaire that declares their Hispanic origin."

Hispanic heritage is also the underlying theme of the latest issue of the Census Bureau's Facts for Features, a regular publication that includes statistical data about Hispanic families, educational attainment, businesses and employment. The Census Bureau also produces a daily, one-minute radio feature called "Al Dia," which is distributed every business day to Spanish-language radio stations throughout the country.

"The Census 2000 slogan for the Hispanic community is 'H gase Contar' of 'Make Yourself Count," said Prewitt. "Answering the census is important, easy and safe. That's why on the occasion of Hispanic Heritage Month, I urge the Latino community to do just that."
