PUERTO RICO NOTICIAS

13 June 2013

PUERTO RICANS COMPRISE 9% OF THE LATINO POPULATION OF USA AND 1.5% OF THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF USA.

At 9% of the Latino population in the United States, Puerto Ricans are the second largest Hispanic group nationwide (second only to mexicans), and comprise 1.5% of the entire population of the United States. Despite new demographic trends, New York City continues to be home to the largest Puerto Rican community in the United States, with Philadelphia having the second largest Puerto Rican community. The portmanteau "Nuyorican" refers to Puerto Ricans and their descendants in and around New York. A large portion of the Puerto Rican population in the United States reside in the Northeastern states and Florida, though there are significant Puerto Rican populations in the Chicago metropolitan area and other areas in Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Georgia, Texas, and California, among others.

Puerto Ricans are us citizens by birth right and Puerto Ricans living in the states for more than a year can vote for the president of the United States while the residents of the archipelago of Puerto Rico can not.
