The Latino and Hispanic community is one of the fastest growing communities in America this decade.

According to the most recent American Community Survey, there are now some 6.3M more Hispanics living in America than in 2010.

That’s the largest absolute growth and a 14.9% increase. The percentage growth is the third largest percentage change for any race according to the Census’s race and ethnicity definition.

But how has the increase impacted Ohio? Where cities and towns in Ohio have seen the greatest increase in it’s Hispanic population?

Turns out there’s been a 20.4% increase in the Hispanic population in Ohio.

We broke down the most recent census data to determine the cities in Ohio with the largest Hispanic population in 2019:

How We Determined The Cities In Ohio With The Largest Hispanic Population For 2019

We still believe in the accuracy of data — especially from the census. So that’s where we went to get the breakdown of race across Ohio.

That lead us to the Census’s most recently available data, the 2013-2017 American Community Survey data from the US Census.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as Hispanic or Latino.

We limited our analysis to non-CDPs with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 247 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are Hispanic or Latino. The percentages ranked from 29.4% to 0.0%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of Hispanic or Latino population with a higher score being more Hispanic or Latino than a lower score. Lorain took the distinction of being the most Hispanic or Latino, while New Lexington was the least Hispanic or Latino city.
