The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today's most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and stimulate civic life.
The Pew Hispanic Center conducts research in both the United States and Latin America to learn about the massive flow of dollars that links Latino immigrants with their families back home. Various studies have examined the types of people who send and those who receive remittances. In addition, the center has focused attention on the market for remittance transfer services, assessing how immigrants choose those services and how the market has responded to growing demand.
Recent topics explored include prices, policies and financial institutions in the remittance marketplace; the transnational channels for remittances; and the relationship of remittances and banking for Latino immigrants.
The information in these reports is developed through rigorous scientific research as well as regular public opinion surveys, and advances an understanding of remittances among journalists, academics, political analysts and other interested parties.
The Pew Hispanic Center 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.

Jan 08, 2009 - Like the U.S. population as a whole, Latinos are feeling the sting of the economic downturn. Almost one in ten (9%) Latino homeowners say they missed a mortgage payment or were unable to make a full payment, and 36% say they are worried that their own home may go into foreclosure. The Pew Hispanic Center survey also finds that the economic downturn has had an impact on the amount of money that Latinos sent to relatives or others in their country of origin in the past year.
