It should be Puerto Rico's, not Ricos'.  You need a comma after 'Spanish' and another after 'English'.  I would recommend citing the source rather than calling it 'a source'. I just substituted 'PR Chamber...'


Over 95% of Puerto Rico's population speaks Spanish, and fewer than 20% are proficient in English, according to the Puerto Rico Chamber of Commerce.

I also like to use the words "more than" rather than "over".
