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.
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.
