The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, has released updated statistical profiles of the Latino and foreign-born populations in the U.S. Based on the Center’s tabulations from the Census Bureau’s 2009 American Community Survey, these profiles feature downloadable data on detailed characteristics of the Latino and foreign-born populations at the national level.
The two profiles-Hispanics in the United States, 2009 and Foreign-Born Population in the United States, 2009-are national in scope. These profiles focus on the demographic and economic characteristics of Hispanics and the foreign born in the U.S. Topics covered include racial self-identification, age, geographic dispersion, nativity, citizenship, origin, language proficiency, living arrangements, marital status, fertility, schooling, health insurance coverage, earnings, poverty and other labor market outcomes. Comparisons with the white, black and total populations are also available in the statistical profiles.
A second series of statistical profiles focuses on the demographic and economic characteristics of Hispanics in each of the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The range of topics covered in the State Demographic Profiles is similar to those included in the national portraits of Hispanics and the foreign born.
