PEW Releases New Demographic And Economic Data On Hispanics By State

 The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, today released updated demographic profiles of the 10 largest Hispanic populations in the United States by country of origin: Mexican, Puerto Rican,* Cuban, Salvadoran, Dominican, Guatemalan, Colombian, Honduran, Ecuadorian and Peruvian. These profiles also describe the employment and income characteristics of each group. The characteristics of each group are also 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 2008 American Community Survey (ACS). 


The 10 demographic profiles are now available at the Pew Hispanic Center's website,www.pewhispanic.org.

 

*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.
