During that time, the growth rate of the Hispanic population was 3.6 percent. Fifty-six percent of the growth was attributed to the birth of Hispanic children, while the rest was attributed to immigration.

More than 41 million Hispanics now live in the United States, making up 14 percent of the total population. Hispanics constitute an even higher percentage of the school-age population.

The report found that 9.6 million, or 18 percent, of the nation’s 53.2 million children ages 5 to 17 are Hispanic.
