Two-Thirds of Latinos Consider Hispanic Their Race: Pew Report
June 23, 2015
Two-thirds of Latinos in the U.S. consider their Hispanic background to be part of their race, a newly released Pew Research Center survey has found.
That's the case even though Hispanic is considered an ethnicity by the U.S. Census bureau.
"That finding alone ... speaks to many Hispanics who say that their background is part of their race. That is something that doesn't fit with what Census' five standard backgrounds are," said Mark Hugo Lopez, director of Hispanic research at Pew Research Center.
