In 1988, Hispanics constituted 22 percent of the public school students in Providence; the current figure is 50 percent. The percentage of non-Hispanic whites, meanwhile, dropped from 40 percent to 17 percent.

Note: In some cases, the enrollment figure at the top of each bar does not equal the total of the four racial/ethnic categories, because of rounding.
