Latino Children in Poverty

For the first time, Latinos are the single largest group of poor children, outnumbering whites, according to census data analyzed in a new Pew Hispanic Center report on Hispanic childhood poverty. In 2010, 37.3% of poor children were Latino, 30.5% were white and 26.6% were black. Most of the 6.1 million poor Hispanic children have parents who are immigrants. Among the Latino groups with the highest poverty rates are children of single mothers (57.3% poor), children of parents with a high school education or less (48.3%) and children of unemployed parents (43.5%).
