A Portrait of the Nation’s 52 Million Hispanics 

The Pew Research Center today published a statistical profile of the U.S. Hispanic population. This profile, based on Pew Research tabulations from the Census Bureau’s 2011 American Community Survey, features detailed characteristics of the U.S. Hispanic population at the national level. Topics covered include age, geographic dispersion, nativity, citizenship, origin, language proficiency, racial self-identification, living arrangements, marital status, fertility, schooling, health insurance coverage, earnings, poverty and other labor market outcomes. The data featured in the profile may be downloaded from the center’s website.

Besides the new data on Hispanics, the Pew Research Center also released two new slideshows on immigrants and Hispanics in the United States. The slideshow on immigrants highlights key findings from the statistical profile of the foreign-born population in the United States, which was released last month.

The statistical profile and slideshows on immigrants and  Hispanics are for immediate release and available at www.pewhispanic.org.

The Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan, non-advocacy research organization based in Washington, D.C. It is a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts. Its Hispanic Center, founded in 2001, seeks to improve understanding of the U.S. Hispanic population and to chronicle Latinos’ growing impact on the nation.
