Following a national trend, Rhode Island has become more diverse in the past decade, according to data released by the US Census Bureau on Thursday.

The map and charts below show that the Ocean State has seen a jump in Hispanic and Latino residents from 12.4 percent in 2010 to 16.6 percent of the state population in 2020. You can see the percent change in population since 2010, or explore each town’s demographic changes individually. The towns that shrunk the most are redder; those that grew are greener. (NOTE: An earlier version of this map transposed the towns of West Warwick, West Greenwich, and Westerly.)
