According to Bloomberg, the US Hispanic population is growing three times more quickly than the US population as a whole.
Here’s an article excerpt…
Hispanics accounted for half the U.S. population growth from July 2003 to July 2004 and numbered 41.3 million, about 14 percent of the population, as of July 1, 2004.
The U.S. population is about 296.3 million. Population growth from July 1, 2003, to July 1, 2004, was 2.9 million, the Census Bureau said, with half of that coming from Hispanics.
Over that period, the Hispanic growth rate was 3.6 percent compared with a growth rate of 1.0 percent for the population as a whole, the bureau said.
Given these statistics, it’s little wonder that US companies are aggressively launching Spanish-language Web sites. I’ve compiled a growing list of these Web sites here.
