Its mission is to improve understanding of the U.S. Hispanic population and to chronicle Latinos' growing impact on the entire nation. The Center does not advocate for or take positions on policy issues. It is a project of the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan "fact tank" in Washington, DC that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world.

Recent Research Reports:

2007 National Survey of Latinos: As Illegal Immigration Issue Heats Up, Hispanics Feel a Chill

The 2007 National Survey of Latinos finds Hispanics are feeling a range of negative effects from the increased public attention to immigration and stepped up enforcement measures. About half worry about deportation, for themselves, family or friends, nearly two-thirds say life is more difficult, and about half report at least one negative impact. But Latinos generally see illegal immigrants as a plus and oppose many of the new enforcement measures being pursued by federal and state authorities.

Between Here and There: How Attached Are Latino Immigrants to Their Native Country?

Most Latino immigrants maintain some connection to their native country by sending remittances, traveling back or telephoning relatives, but just one-in-ten engages in all three activities on a regular basis and nearly three-in-ten engage in none. The attachment of Latino immigrants to their native country is related to where they came from, their age at arrival, and their years in the U.S, and their attitudes toward the U.S.

The Pew Hispanic Research Focus

The Pew Hispanic Center conducts and commissions studies that is accessible to the interested public and covers a range of social issues. The Center focuses on eight key subject areas:
  • Demography - The patterns of Hispanic population growth and settlement across the United States.
  • Economics - The wealth, well-being and wages of Latinos over time and in comparison to others.
  • Education - The outcomes and the factors that produce them as well as Latino views on education policy issues.
  • Identity - Attitudes towards a variety of matters shape the ways that Latinos see themselves and their place in U.S. society.
  • Immigration - The foreign born as a factor in population growth, their origins and characteristics.
  • Labor - Hispanic's role in the labor force and the impact of business cycles on their employment and wages.
  • Politics - Levels of participation, views on policy issues and partisan loyalties.
  • Remittances - The billions of dollars sent home by Latino immigrants, how they are sent and how they are spent.
