Utica and Rome Hispanic Population Concentrations

the singular fastest growing segment of our population is among Hispanic peoples. The term "Hispanic" in the census is used as an ethnic identifier, not a racial category. Hence many people may identify them by one of the traditional race categories (Caucasian, African American, Asian, etc.) but also indicate that they are Hispanic. These are not mutually exclusive categories by Census definition.

Below are three maps showing the concentration of persons who identified themselves as ethnically Hispanic in the 2010 Census for the Utica and Rome metro areas, based on block group geography.
