"I want to know how many Hispanics will be living in the United States by 2050?"
Marta - Los Angeles, USA
In 2000 a national government census concluded that there were over 35 million Hispanics living in the United States, making American Latinos the fifth largest Spanish-speaking population in the world, behind Mexico, Colombia, Spain and Argentina.
That may sound impressive, but it's nothing compared to the estimated 100 million Hispanics who will be living in the United States by the year 2050. With this population explosion, you will see Latinos taking even more prominent positions in all areas of American life and culture.
It's an exciting time to be Hispanic in the United States!
