Hispanics are 15% of the U.S. population and with the 2010 Census upon us, the government wants to find out how exact the current figure is. Planning for schools, roadways, and other big ticket projects, depends on accurate census data, not to mention the organization and growth of political districts. The Census Bureau believes the Hispanic population will triple by 2050.

Today’s el diario is fully dedicated to linking you over to the Today Show, which is focusing on Hispanic Americans this week . Today show national correspondent and co-anchor, Natalie Morales, wrote a blog post about why the popular morning show is dedicating so much of the airwaves to Latinos. Morales, who is Brazilian and Puerto Rican, explains:

“We hope to explore these defining parts of culture, as well as the wide-ranging issues facing the Hispanic community, in next week’s series called “We the People.”  Why cover these issues now?  Because we recognize the profile of who we are as America is vastly changing.”

If you click on over to the series page, “We the People,” you’ll see videos, stories, even recipes.

Here’s the opening video segment on the census data and changing America.

Enjoy.
