What is the national origin of most Hispanics in the U.S.?

Of the 22.4 million Hispanic-Americans counted in the 1990 census, more than 60 percent (13.5 million) are of Mexican heritage.

Another 2.7 million are Puerto Rican, 1 million are Cuban, and the rest are “other.”

All together, Hispanics, who can be of any race, account for 9 percent of the U.S. population.
