Pew Research Hispanic Center: U.S. Residents of Salvadoran Origin in Line to Become the 3rd Largest Hispanic Origin Group, Surpassing Cubans

According to the Pew Research Hispanic Center, U.S. Hispanics of Salvadoran origin and U.S. Hispanics of Cuban origin each constitute a population of around 1.9 million. In fact, in a recent Pew survey, Salvadorans technically outnumbered Cubans, though by a difference not all that statistically significant.

Significance is found, however, in that U.S. residents of Cuban origin are no longer the definitively third largest American Hispanic group, a distinction held for several decades, per the Pew Research Hispanic Center.

Currently, per Pew, U.S. residents of Mexican origin total approximately 33.5 million, while those of Puerto Rican origin have a population of around 4.9 million.
