The Census Bureau says the nation's Latino population increased from 35.3 million on April 1, 2000, to 38.8 million on July 1, 2002.

Among racial groups, Asians had the highest rate of growth at 9.0 percent.

Census Bureau Director Louis Kincannon said: "The official population estimates now indicate the Hispanic community is the nation's largest minority community."

He told a meeting of League of United Latin American Citizens that new population estimates showed the Hispanic population grew 9.8 percent between Census Day, April 1, 2000, and July 1, 2002. The rate of growth of the population as a whole was 2.5 percent.
