Miami-Dade's Hispanic population grew from 2007 to 2008, the latest US Census Bureau American Community Survey shows — though several segments of the local Hispanic community shrank during the period.
There could be myriad explanations, experts say, including the struggling local economy or a lure back to home or Spanish-speaking countries.
However, the changes could also be a result of small sample size and tweaks in the survey, one demographer cautions, meaning the changes may not truly reflect trends.
The study, released late last month, counted 1.496 million Hispanics in Miami-Dade in 2008, up from 1.479 million in 2007. Most, 981,908, are foreign born, up from 981,585 in 2007.
Several Hispanic population groups here declined from 2007 to 2008, data suggest, most notably Bolivians, whose numbers here fell by more than half: from 4,847 in 2007 to 2,334 last year.
The numbers reflect those who identified themselves as part of the population group, not just respondents native to the countries — for instance, a native Miamian born to Bolivian parents.
The Puerto Rican population in Miami also dropped, from 94,264 in 2007 to 88,367 last year, the survey shows.
The 48,635 Dominicans counted in 2007 dropped to 46,047.
The Uruguayan segment shrank from 6,824 in 2007 to 4,865. Costa Ricans saw a less severe drop, from 7,045 to 6,168.
Even the Cuban population here shrank slightly, from 794,883 to 791,913, the survey shows.

This worries me. I'm really afraid that great businesses like Sedanos, La Revoltosa, Nooo Que barato!!! and botanicas in general, will be closed due to this drastic change in the Cuban population.

I'm not surprised by this at all believe or not most hispanics hate Miami for what it's become too. I wonder what the numbers are for Broward and Palm Beach in Hispanic popultations which are always going up because the people moving from Miami. Their hasn't been many mass migrations of any hispanic country recently. Miami more likely to get more Haitians now than ever.

Is it me or is the reading comprehension here a little bit questionable. The actual number of Hispanics INCREASED not decreased. They are simply pointing out that a few segments of the Hispanic population such as Cubans, Puerto Rican, etc have decreased. But regardless there are MORE Hispanics Miami-Dade county than before.

All of these posts are on target.

First off is perpective. The immigration crack down and economic crisis have reduced immigration across the board to this country so logically it is down in Miami too.

Second, the numbers are small and this is an immigrant city and always will be due to it's size, location and history.

Thrid point: Many immigrants dabble in Miami for a while and realize that attaining the American Dream here is not feasible due to excessive costs and limited job opportunities, which is why other places are drawing Hispanics (and other residents as well) away from Miami.

Finally, there has been a tremendous amount of revitalization in Miami and what was once hispanic neighborhood after hispanic neighborhood has now turned into Hispanic areas with condos and apartments where a lot of europeans and people from the north east (many caucasian) have moved in. Basically, the numbers are fluctuating but I don't think this is a trend that the Latin population will drop dramatically. I just think the numbers will have slight variations over time depending on external factors, mainly the economy.

This illustrates my point exactly. Chelito23 is making the argument that the Hispanic population has decreased due to things like an immigration crack down which makes no sense when you actually read the first line of the post.

"Miami-Dade's Hispanic population grew from 2007 to 2008, the latest US Census Bureau American Community Survey shows"

"The study, released late last month, counted 1.496 million Hispanics in Miami-Dade in 2008, up from 1.479 million in 2007. Most, 981,908, are foreign born, up from 981,585 in 2007."

The number of foreign born Hispanics has INCREASED!!

"No mija no!" that will never happen. There will always be more coming in to replace the ones that have left.

Yes this is nonsense. Less than 3k Cubans out of almost 800k only represent one third of one percent or 0.3% of their population which has no statistical significance.

They also left out other major immigrant groups like Nicaraguan(2nd largest) Colombians, Venezuelans, Peruvians and Hondurians.
