One of the biggest population trends revealed in the 2010 U.S. Census data is diversity, as our nation’s minorities continue to be the fastest-growing segments of the population.
In Florida, for example, the Hispanic population has increased by nearly 25% in the past decade and now accounts for 23% of the total population, up by 6% from a decade ago. Tampa’s Hispanic population now accounts for 23% of residents, while Orlando’s makes up slightly over 25%.
Based on the numbers that the latest Census has revealed, multicultural growth is occurring in every category, whether it’s the Hispanic population or increases in citizens of Asian and African-American origin. And the American Community Survey that is part of the U.S. Census now shows that almost all the communities served by Bright House Networks in Florida, Alabama, Michigan, Indiana and California are at or above the U.S. national average of 12.4 percent of the citizens being foreign born. Bright House Networks has been recognized through both local and national awards – including the Onyx Award in Florida and the national Walter Kaitz Foundation Award for its own diversity efforts.
