PEW Releases New Demographic And Economic Data On Hispanics By State

The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, has released updated profiles of the Latino population in the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. Derived from the 2008 American Community Survey, these profiles feature downloadable data on the demographic and economic characteristics of the Latino populations in each state.

 

The Center also updated the national portraits of Hispanics and the foreign-born population adding data on racial self-identification and health insurance coverage. Almost one-third of Hispanics identify with "some other race" compared with less than one percent of the non-Hispanic population. Hispanics are twice as likely as the overall population to lack health insurance coverage. Among foreign-born Hispanics, one-in-two lacks health insurance coverage.

 

A brief commentary on the profiles is also available on the Center's website.

 

Updated data on the Latino population in U.S. counties will be forthcoming shortly.  County data through 2007 are currently available on the Center's website.

 

 

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.
