    Centro Research Finds Dramatic Changes
    In Demographic and Socio-Economic Status
    Of Puerto Ricans in U.S.


    Over the last decade, with a combination of emigration and mainland U.S. births, the Puerto Rican population living in the United States outnumbers that on the island. There has been a concomitant change in population distribution, with Puerto Ricans dispersing across state lines. According to the new book of research, Puerto Ricans at the Dawn of the New Millennium, published by the Centro for Puerto Rican Studies (Centro) this profile is dramatically different from what it was at the turn of the century.

    The fast-growing Puerto Rican population in the South, West and Midwest is expected to outnumber Puerto Ricans in the Northeast. “When (not if) this event happens, it will mark a significant shift in the history of Puerto Ricans in the United States,” according to an essay in Puerto Ricans at the Dawn of the New Millennium, published by the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Centro) at Hunter College.
