…the number of Spaniards is on the rise in the United States.

According to January 2016 data provided by Spanish Consulates in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, the number of Spaniards registered is 139,483. In 2015 it was 128,280 and in 2014, 117,005; this means an increase of about 20% in these two years. According to the number of Spaniards registered in the CERA (Spanish Census of Nationals Abroad), the United States occupies the eight place amongst countries with large Spanish communities, after Argentina, France, Venezuela, Cuba, Germany, Brazil, and Mexico. In countries such as Sweden, United Kingdom, Uruguay and Chile, the Spanish communities have smaller communities.

As far as where Spaniards are located, also according to Spanish Consulates, half of them live in the areas of Miami and New York, followed by Houston and Los Angeles. The rest of the Consulates have also increased their numbers.
