Structured abstract:

Background:  Hispanics have moved beyond traditional metropolitan areas in the past twenty years.
Purpose:  The purpose of this article is to examine emerging patterns of racial/ethnic residential segregation in areas where Hispanics have moved to in 1990-2010. The authors ask if recent demographic and economic processes have lessened, or if racial boundaries have perpetuated in these nonmetropolitan areas.
Findings:  The authors conclude that residential segregation of Hispanics from whites is often very high, yet declining slowly in rural areas. The segregation in rural areas is even higher than in established gateway communities.

Populations served:  Rural and remote communities
Culturally diverse populations (e.g., African Americans, Native Americans, and non-English speaking populations)
