The Puerto Rican population in the United States continues to grow in the new millennium. Puerto Ricans also continue to disperse throughout the entire country. Moreover, Puerto Rican settlements throughout the country continue to grow, with the exception of New York City, which continues to lose Puerto Ricans.
This work presents an overview of this population growth in the United States and the extent to which the Puerto Ricans establish themselves as neighbors of other ethnoracial groups in the country. It replicates an earlier analysis of decennial census data from 1990 and 2000, updating it with 2010 decennial census data.
