New York City’s Dominican Population Becomes Largest Latino Community for the First Time

Where had the Puerto Ricans gone? Oh pero bueno! Cual es la vaina aquí?

Repeating Islands


A new study found that Dominicans have become the largest Latino group in New York City, surpassing the Puerto Rican population for the first time, The Latin Post reports.

The study also found that Dominicans had the highest number of births in the city among Latino subgroups, according to New York City’s Bureau of Vital Statistics.

Over 33,000 children were born to Dominican mothers between 2010 and 2012. Although data has not been released for the following year, it be assumed that about 11,000 more were born in 2013.

CUNY’s Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies shows that the city’s Puerto Rican population is no longer the largest Hispanic group as it has been for a long time.

“What stands out from the data is the extraordinary increase in the Dominican population of the city since 2010,” said Laird B. Bergad, director of CLALCS, in a statement.
