The Hispanic population in Orlando has more than doubled since 2000, making it the nation's fourth fastest-growing Latino market in the nation, according to a report from Nielsen.com.
The Orlando area saw a 125.1 percent growth in the Hispanic population from 2000-2013, according to the report.
In addition, the report finds that the rate of Hispanic population growth in mid-sized cities like Orlando, Atlanta and Charlotte, N.C. (the overall leader for growth) mirrors the expansion seen a few decades back in places like New York and Los Angeles.
The report also found that cities like Orlando have become suburban destinations for many Latinos who previously resided in larger cities like Miami or New York — a shift that has drawn attention to markets that previously weren't included in the Hispanic marketer's strategy.
