According to the US Census, the population of Tucson is roughly 548,000 and 43.6% of that number is Hispanic or Latino. 2019 data shows that the Arizona population is 7,278,717, of which 31.7% is Hispanic or Latino.
For over 24 years, Arizona’s Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has published DATOS: The State of Arizona’s HIspanic Market. This report is a compilation of extensive research regarding the impact of Hispanics in the Arizona Marketplace. IT also shows the overall impact of the state’s growing Latino Population. They publish yearly reports and findings about Latino and Hispanic people’s impact on a broad range of issues including demographics, small business ownership, healthcare, and education, to name a few. The 24th annual report showed that the Hispanic population growth continues to help fuel the national economy (including Arizona). According to the report, Latino buying power is projected to reach $1.9 trillion by 2023, only three short years away. In Arizona alone, the number will reach $57.2 billion by 2022. From June 2009 to June 2019, Latino-owned businesses grew by 34%.
This information tells us that the Hispanic and Latino workforce is consistently growing and is projected to do so for the next three years. Regardless of the challenges this minority group may face, statistics prove that it is not only growing, but helping the national economy.
Hispanics are the largest minority group in the US labor force. In 2018, the Business Labor Bureau calculated that 3.4 million workers in the US were Hispanic or Latino, and they project that the number of Hispanics in the labor force will be about 7.4 million from 2018 to 2028 (see BLS Chart below).
