Those are interesting ethnic stats. I think the 2020 census will be the high-water mark for Latino's in Hackensack, and afterwards the percentage will go down. I am sure this prediction will surprise a lot of readers.   Two forces are coming into play (1) the next wave of immigrants is already on a major increase, which are Asians and Muslims, especially India, but also the Phillipines and Korea. Hackensack already has a majority-Asian neighborhood, which is between Essex and Beech Streets, and from the Maywood border to Summit Ave. The percent Asian is on the increase on Prospect and Overlook Avenues, and will probably be a major component in the new downtown development. (2) There will be some gentrification with all the development in and around the downtown, and the percent White moving into those buildings will be higher than the city as a whole.  As this trend takes place, many of the one and two-family residential areas will continue to increase in Latino population for at least the next 20 years.
