Hispanics are Wisconsin’s fastest-growing racial and ethnic group

The U.S. Census Bureau said 11,000 more Latinos moved to the state last year, for a total of 272,000. Almost five of every 100 Wisconsinites are now Hispanic. That’s the 32nd highest ratio in the country, and the state now ranks 24th in its total number of Latinos. Hispanics grew 41% since the last Census.
