The Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project develops and analyzes data concerning the economic health and well-being of Latinos in America. This includes statistics broken out by Latino sub-groups as well as analysis of the impact of changes in the business cycle on employment and income.

Recent topics include the availability of construction jobs for Latinos in a slumping housing market; growth in the foreign-born labor force; opinions of Mexican migrants making the economic transition to America; the consequences of the new Latino South; and wages for Hispanic workers.

The knowledge gathered in these surveys comes from rigorous scientific research including public opinion surveys.  It helps economists, the news media, academics and the public to learn more about the role of Latinos in the U.S. economy.

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