U.S. Latinos: Monolothic, No. Diverse, Si.

Brown University provides a demographic snapshot of U.S. Latinos in a recent report. The study entitled, “Hispanics in the United States: Not Only Mexicans,” (I don’t really care for the title) shares some interesting trends including the significant growth of Central and South American Latinos. Mexican ancestry or immigrants still represent 60% of U.S. Latinos but that number has decreased over the last decade with the influx of Central and South American immigrants. The report also shares good comparative educational data.
