FOCUS - The Socio-Economic Impact of Cincinnati’s Hispanic Community

September 15 through October 15 marks the 5th annual Hispanic Heritage Month celebration in Cincinnati. The local Hispanic population has more than doubled in the last 10 years, which is accounting for almost 25% of Greater Cincinnati's population growth. 


Now in their fifth year, the annual Hispanic Heritage Month campaign is continuing to help provide a more balanced perspective of Cincinnati’s growing Hispanic population. The most recent 2010 Census data for Hispanics, including Hispanic population growth and how immigration affects business, will be released on September 22, 2011.


On this episode of Focus,  Kathy Lehr talks with Alfonso Cornejo (President, Cincinnati USA Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) and Maria Molina (Manager, Latin American Consumer Relations, The Procter & Gamble Company) about the 2010 Census data for Hispanics and why this information is important in making our community more diverse and hospitable.
