The Bronx County population, the 27th largest county in the US,
represents one of the largest, oldest, and most well-established
concentrations of Hispanic/Latino individuals in the US.
The Bronx is home to 644,705 Hispanic/Latino individuals, representing
48% of the 1.3 million Bronx residents (at the county level,
the second highest percentage of Latinos anywhere east of the
Mississippi River). Of the 5 boroughs of New York, the Bronx has
the largest proportion of Hispanics/Latinos. Puerto Ricans are the
most represented Hispanic/Latino subgroup in the Bronx (50%, n=319,240),
followed by Dominican (21%, n=133,087) and Mexican (5%, n=34,377) individuals.
