The Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project assesses employment by region, occupation and industry to offer measures for both the status of Latino workers and the demand for them in the U.S. economy. The center also tracks employment trends, by nativity and generation, and offers comparisons of Hispanic employees with other racial and ethnic groups.

Recent topics explored by the Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project include construction jobs for Latinos; growth in the foreign-born workforce in the U.S. economy; the occupational status and mobility of Hispanics; and the labor force status of short-term unauthorized workers.

The data gathered in these reports come through rigorous scientific research including public opinion surveys. The goal is to advance the knowledge of Latinos in the labor force among journalists, academics, labor-market analysts and the public.

The Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project does not advocate for or take positions on policy issues. The center 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.
