NPR's Pam Fessler reports that the Hispanic population in the U-S has not only increased over the past decade, it has also diversified. Many Hispanics now classify themselves as belonging to some other group than the traditional big three—Mexican, Puerto Rican and Cuban. More Salvadorans, Guatemalans and Colombians were counted by the 2000 census.
