Note: Selected Metropolitan Areas (123 of 330) are those with at least 10 tracts and 3% or 20,000 or more Hispanics or Latinos in 1980. Higher values indicate more segregation; the reference group is non-Hispanic Whites. Segregation estimates are weighted by the size of the Hispanic/ Latino population.
