Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Hondurans and Colombians: A scan of needs of recent Latin American immigrants to the Boston area
The 2000 U.S. Census brought confirmation of the increase of the Latino population and of the growing diversity of Latino national groups that now make this region their home. Latinos now number 428,729, a 55% increase over their numbers in 1990. In 30 years, the Latino population has increased six-fold, and from its initial concentrations in Springfield, Holyoke and Boston its presence is now a fact across the Commonwealth. Massachusetts Latinos are also showing increasing diversity, matching that of the Northeast region and exceeding that of the nation.
