America’s growing Latino population is changing our nation’s demographics, politics, economy, culture, and future.  Pew seeks to improve public understanding of the diverse Hispanic population in the United States and to chronicle the impact Latinos are having on the United States.

This includes public opinion surveys that aim to illuminate Latino views on a range of social matters and public policy issues, including an annual National Survey of Latinos. This work also encompasses demographic studies and other social science research on a wide range of topics, including economics, personal finance, health care, immigration trends, voting patterns, technology, and employment.
