Population and Voting Statistics on Dominican-Americans

The Dominican population in the United States has grown exponentially and now represents over 2 million individuals in the United States according to the latest 2017 estimates from the US Census Bureau, compared to 1.5 million after the 2010 US Census. This exponential growth is thanks to continued migration from the Dominican Republic and a rapidly increasing share of U.S. born Dominicans. We have gathered the best data available to provide a full picture of the Dominican-American community.

 As the U.S. Dominican begins to settle in more geographically diverse places, this has led to a tremendous increase in the Dominican voting eligible population, US citizens ages 18 and up, in states where Dominican political participation was until recently unheard of. This increase in eligible voters must be combined with voter registration activity within the Dominican-American community to realize this potential new political influence.
