Updated Profiles of Hispanic and Foreign-Born U.S. Residents

The Pew Hispanic Center’s statistical profiles of Hispanics and foreign-born U.S. residents have been updated using 2008 data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. The profiles of economic and demographic characteristics include two topics not covered in previous versions of these profiles:  Racial self-identification and health insurance status. Similar profiles are available for the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Other topics covered in the profiles include age, geographic dispersion, nativity, citizenship, origin, language proficiency, living arrangements, marital status, fertility, schooling, earnings, poverty and occupation.
