In 2005, Hispanics will make up 14.1 percent of the total population, according to U.S. Census data projections. Hispanic females represent slightly less than half, or 48.9 percent, of the total U.S. Hispanic population. The Hispanic female population includes 20.5 million women, or 13.6 percent of the total U.S. female population. Within the groups of different Hispanic origin, the Mexican subgroup is the largest, constituting 66 percent of all U.S. Hispanic females.
HispanTelligence estimates the growth rates of the female population through the year 2050. By then, the number of Hispanic females in the United States will reach nearly 51 million – an increase of 194 percent from the year 2000, based on projections from the U.S. Census Bureau. During the same time, the total U.S. female population will grow only 48 percent, to 213.38 million. At this rate of growth, according to HispanTelligence estimates, Hispanic females will make up nearly a quarter of the total U.S. female population by 2050.
