How many Hispanic Americans live in the United States?

As of 1995, the U.S. Census Bureau counted 26.9 million people of Hispanic origin.

This is about 10 percent of the country’s total population. In other words, one out of every ten Americans is a Hispanic American.

In 2011, there were 52,045,277 Hispanic Americans in the United States, or about 16.7% of the U.S. population.
