This data visualization shows the specific origins of people within Hispanic & Latino populations in Connecticut Census tracts, based on published 2010 Census data. This project is modeled on a visualization created by the Census Bureau which shows the distribution of persons of specific Hispanic/Latino origins across U.S. counties; the map below instead can display what percentage of the Hispanic population in a particular Census tract is of Puerto Rican, or Mexican, origins, for example. The data are taken from 2010 Census table PCT11 for Census Tracts (see link in the tooltip when hovering over the map to see original data for any Census Tract in American FactFinder), and are originally derived from part 8 of the 2010 Census questionnaire.
