Census: Latino growth fastest in exurbs of Orlando, Tampa
Florida's Latino population grew fastest last year in counties in the exurbs of Orlando and Tampa, according to U.S. Census figures released Thursday. The new figures also showed strong Latino growth rates in counties outside Jacksonville, but those areas had comparatively small Hispanic populations to start with. Among counties with more than 100,000 residents, St. Johns County near Jacksonville led the state in Latino population growth rate from July 2015 to July 2016. The county's Latino population grew 7.5 percent, to almost 15,500 residents, in that period.
