Most New Texans are Hispanic

U.S. Census Bureau

The U.S. Census says Texas gained nearly nine Hispanic residents last year for every new white resident.

Census figures released Thursday show the state's Hispanic population is now almost eleven-point-four-million, up nearly two-million since 2010.

The state's white population is nearly 12-million, but has grown by less than half-a-million since 2010.

White population growth in Texas is barely keeping pace with the growth of the state's numbers of Asians.

Hispanics could become the largest population group in Texas by 2022.
