Hispanics in America

The Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project helps all Americans to better understand the impact that a rapidly growing Latino population is having on the way we live today and on our nation’s future. The center produces research to increase awareness of the Hispanic population in the United States and chronicle its growing importance.

The center conducts and commissions studies with the aim of presenting research that both meets the most rigorous scientific standards and is accessible to the interested public. It also regularly conducts public opinion surveys to illuminate Latino views on a range of social and public policy issues.

This body of research assists journalists, academics, policy makers and the public by expanding their knowledge and deepening their understanding of the U.S. Hispanic population.

Recent projects have included the most up-to-date compilation of statistics and analysis available on Latino and foreign-born populations; a study of how Hispanics are transforming the nation’s religious landscape; and a look at Latinos’ Internet use.

Founded in 2001, the Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project does not advocate for or take positions on policy issues. It is a project of the Pew Research Center, a Pew subsidiary and a nonpartisan “fact tank” based in Washington, D.C., that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world.
