Pew Hispanic Center


From the site, “Founded in 2001, the Pew Hispanic Center is a nonpartisan research organization that seeks to improve understanding of the U.S. Hispanic population and to chronicle Latinos’ growing impact on the nation.” The Center provides publications and statistics on the Hispanic population in the United States. Their Data and Resources section shows statistical portraits, along with demographic and economic characteristics of the Hispanic population segment. There is also a state and county database, along with a metropolitan fact sheet, that provides good statistical information on this segment.
