Pew Hispanic Center profiles five largest Hispanic populations in the US

 

The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, today released demographic profiles of the five largest Hispanic populations in the United States by country of origin: Mexican, Puerto Rican,* Cuban, Salvadoran, and Dominican. These profiles also describe the employment and income characteristics of each group. The characteristics of each group are contrasted with the characteristics of all Hispanics and the U.S. population overall. The profiles are based on the Center's tabulations of the Census Bureau's 2007 American Community Survey (ACS). 

The five demographic profiles are now available at the Pew Hispanic Center's website,www.pewhispanic.org.


*The demographic profile of Puerto Ricans in the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia was released previously 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. 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.
