    One million Puerto Ricans in
    Florida by the end of 2014

    By the end of 2014, Florida will become the second state behind New York to exceed a population of one million Puerto Ricans. New data released by the American Community Survey shows that Puerto Ricans in the United States are growing at a rate faster than the population of the United States as a whole and much faster than the population for non-Hispanic whites. The population for Puerto Ricans also grew faster than Hispanics and Latinos as a whole.
