A Demographic Portrait of Mexican-Origin Hispanics in the United States, by Ana Gonzalez-Barrera and Mark Hugo Lopez, May 1, 2013

  • “A record 33.7 million Hispanics of Mexican origin resided in the United States in 2012, according to an analysis of Census Bureau data by Pew Research Center. This estimate includes 11.4 million immigrants born in Mexico and 22.3 million born in the U.S. who self-identified as Hispanics of Mexican origin. Mexicans are by far the largest Hispanic origin population in the U.S., accounting for nearly two-thirds (64%) of the U.S. Hispanic population in 2012. Hispanics of Mexican origin are also a significant portion of the U.S. population, accounting for 11% overall.”
