The US Census Bureau is a bureau of the US Department of Commerce. The major functions of the Census Bureau are authorized by Article 2, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, which provides that a census of population shall be taken every 10 years, and by Title 13 and Title 26 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations.
The Census Bureau is responsible for numerous statistical programs, including census and surveys of households, governments, manufacturing and industries, and for US foreign trade statistics. The first US census was conducted in 1790 for the purposes of apportioning state representation in the US House of Representatives and for the apportionment of taxes.
Dataset: DPSF10. Total Population Hispanic or Latino by Origin from the 2010 US Census of Population and Housing: Demographic Profiles Database
Reports a count of the United States population at the national (including Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico), state, and county level, by totals for each of the specific Hispanic or Latino classifications used in the United States Census. These classifications are Mexican, Mexican American, Chicano, Cuban, and Another Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin.
The United States Census of Population and Housing counts every resident in the United States every 10 years, as mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution. The data collected by the decennial census are used to determine the number of seats each state has in the US House of Representatives and to allocate federal funds to local communities. The Demographic Profile Summary File presents 100% of data obtained in the 2010 decennial census and provides details about race and Hispanic groups, age, sex, and housing status of the US population. The profiles are released on a state-by-state basis for each of the 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico.
Processing of the data by the Census Bureau aims to produce a set of data that describes the population as accurately and clearly as possible. 2010 Census questionnaires are generally not edited for consistency, completeness, and acceptability during field data collection nor during data capture operations. Enumerator-filled questionnaires were reviewed by census crew leaders and local office clerks for adherence to specified procedures. No clerical review of mail return questionnaires was done, nor were households contacted to collect data that were missing from census returns as in previous censuses.

Efforts made to reduce nonsampling error and other details related to data processing are available in the technical documentation. Also, user updates available at www.census.gov inform data users about corrections, errata, and related explanatory information.
