Its kind of hard to believe PRs population is still increasing,over a thousand puertoricans leave each week for the US and the birth rate keeps decreasing...

^The Dominicans and other people from Latin America are definately a large part of the population increase. There are on average over 3,000 known (meaning documented) Dominicans that migrate to PR each year.

dgreco, Hawaii's growth according to the census for this year has slowed slightly. There a couple of important reasons for this: 1. there's a huge elderly population and they are dying in large numbers which skew the equation (births-deaths= #). 2. there's also a negative domestic inmigration (a) military & their family members moving back and forth between the state and the U.S. Mainland (b) people outmigrating for a cheaper cost of living.

One of the single most largest factors for the increasing population in Hawaii is due to international migration and it appears to be rising again. In other words Hawaii is becoming more and more foreign-born as the domestic-born die or move away. The largest immigrant sources currently come from: the Philippines, Federated States of Micronesia, China, Japan, Marshall Islands, Korea, Vietnam, Canada, Thailand, Mexico, Brasil, Samoa, Tonga, Colombia, Argentina, UK, Germany, Palau, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, etc.

The figures don't include the many that move to Hawaii from other U.S. territories like American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and Puerto Rico.

There's also thousands of undocumented Mexicans in Hawaii now and it appears to be increasing yearly. Many have moved to the Big Island of Hawaii (Puna & Kohala districts) and Maui (West Maui). Immigration is mainly removing those that pose a threat to the state (e.g., gang affiliates, drug trafficers, etc).

Sure just click on this link: http://www.census.gov/popest/estimates.php and go to the drop down menu, there are a bunch of different stats to choose from like annual population estimates, components of change, etc.

According to the census it looks like Rhode Island is experiencing a lot of domestic outmigration. However, i wouldn't put too much stock into these figures because of the way that they gather the yearly info. The real deal will be in 2010.

BTW in the case of Hawaii i think that they will be seeing larger growth soon but most likely from international immigration because of the growing demand for workers.

Most cubans stay here very little time,they just stay here while they wait for their family(mostly in Miami) to pick them up.Dominicans...most of them come here and start robbing,traficking drugs/weapons,gangs,etc.

there isn't an influx of residents from the mainland moving to Puerto Rico? It kinda seems like a more convenient HA. Except for the whole not speaking english part.

I don't think its just that,I know that there are more americans in the majority of the countries WorldWide than in PR...

Statehood lost by 2% last time,not many people want

independence,mostly want to stay the same (commonwealth) cause they're afraid of changes imo

There's a large Dominican populaton in PR. The thing is that most of them enters the island as illegal inmigrants so they will not appear on the stats. In the last year there's has been an increasing number of Cubans entering the US via Puerto Rico, but most (not all) of them then moves to Miami cause of their families. As far as I know people from the mainland who lives in PR are because they work here e.g. professors, scientists in the Arecibo Observatory, Coast Guard, National Park System, FBI, etc. As well for other latinos and people from all over the world but the numbers aren't that significant.

Puerto Ricos size is 3,514sq miles

It has aprox. 446 people per sq kilometer which is over 1,200 people per sq mile...

If it would be a state of the US,it would be the most dense,followed by New Jersey(and there are over 300,000 puertoricans in New Jersey)
