One of the most salient points, of the 2010 Census Results is the very high growth of the Hispanic population in markets outside of the top 5 Hispanic markets. Hispanic population is less concentrated than 10 years ago. In 2000, 61 percent of the Hispanic population residing in the 50 states and District of Columbia resided in just four states: California, Texas, Arizona and Florida. By 2010, that proportion had declined to 58 percent while nine states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee) saw their Hispanic populations more than double.
