Hispanic Population Cartogram

Lab9_BrandThomas

The purpose of this lab was to compare each states Hispanic population per square mile and adjusts the size of each state accordingly. Each population was compared to the average of the united states so big states have a surplus of Hispanics and small states have fewer than the average. You can easily see that California most likely has the largest Hispanic Population while places like North Dakota have the least. Maryland looks pretty close to normal size, maybe a bit bigger than it usually is. California, Texas and Florida have the most Hispanics per square mile. This map clearly shows each states Hispanic population in comparison to the national average per square mile and how certain states have the majority and many states have far fewer than they should.
