Growing Population of Hispanics in the US

This weekend I moved into a new apartment and hurt my back doing it so I spent today resting on the couch and looking into interesting business opportunities. One interesting trend is the growing population of Hispanics in the United States. According to the US Census Bureau, as of July 1 2006 there were 44.3 million Hispanics representing 14.8% of the total population in the United States. The growth rate for the Hispanic population is an amazing 24.3% or more than three times the general 6.1% US population growth rate. There a big opportunity here and it’s up for grabs by any entrepreneur out there. This is one to definitely think about as the population continues to grow.
