During the 1970s, Hispanics continued to enter Florida’s agricultural workforce in large numbers, but others were attracted to Orange County (Orlando) where they filled service positions in the rapidly expanding tourist industry. The spillover of Hispanics from Miami-Dade County into nearby Broward (Ft. Lauderdale) during that decade was sufficient for that county’s share of Hispanics to reach 4 percent. During the same period, the share of Hispanics in a number of rural counties on the peninsula also reached or surpassed that level.
