Hispanic Center Releases New Demographic Profiles of U.S. Hispanics


Pew Hispanic Center Releases New
Demographic Profiles of U.S. Hispanics
By Country of Origin
The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, today released five demographic profiles of Hispanic populations in the United States by country of origin: Guatemalan, Colombian, Honduran, Ecuadorian and Peruvian. 
These five follow the release earlier this year of demographic profiles for the five largest Hispanic populations: Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Salvadoran, and Dominican.*
The profiles of the ten largest Hispanic populations in the U.S. describe the employment and income characteristics of each group. Characteristics of each group are also contrasted with the characteristics of all Hispanics and with the U.S. population overall. The profiles are based on the Center's tabulations of the Census Bureau's 2007 American Community Survey (ACS).

All ten demographic profiles are available at the Pew Hispanic Center's website, www.pewhispanic.org.
*The demographic profiles of Mexicans, Cubans, Salvadorans and Dominicans were released in September. The demographic profile of Puerto Ricans in the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia was released in July. Country of origin is self-described in response to the Hispanic origin question in the ACS. It is not necessarily the same as place of birth. For example, a person born in Los Angeles may identify his or her country of origin as Mexico. Likewise, some people born in Mexico may identify another country as their origin depending on the place of birth of their ancestors.
The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, is a nonpartisan, non-advocacy research organization based in Washington, D.C. and is funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts.
