Hispanic/Latino Health in North Carolina - Demographics

Record #:
Hispanics are attracted to North Carolina by a moderate climate, job opportunities, and low cost of living. There are approximately 230,000 living in the state. The once stereotypical image of Hispanic-as-migrant no longer is applicable, as many now work in construction, food service, and factories, as well as higher paying jobs, including engineering, medicine, and law. A statistical profile of the 1997 Hispanic population by counties is included.
