Abstract (summary)

Orange County, New York, is located approximately sixty minutes North of New York City. It has become increasingly ethnically diverse in the last decade. The ethnic diversity has changed the composition of the County’s schools and local landscapes.

Middletown is the second largest city in the County, with a population of 25,000, and is the second most ethnically diverse city. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, Latinos are the largest minority group in the City with large Mexicans and Puerto Ricans populations.

There are several conclusions from this study. At the county level, the majority of Puerto Ricans and Mexicans are arriving to Orange County from New York City’s Counties. The overall Latino population in the County are younger, single to married without children; somewhat college educated and have higher household incomes that exceed the County’s median.
