The Latino population grew quickly in most of the nation’s metropolitan areas in the past 20 years, yet not all places grew the same way. To the contrary: Wide variations in the rate and location of Latino growth are generating highly distinct local experiences in different types of metropolitan areas.

The paper also finds that 54 percent of U.S. Hispanics now live in the suburbs.
Between expats, migrant workers, military personnel, and foreign brides, 1.5 million people—or 3 percent of Korea’s population—are foreign-born.
