Fernando Soriano, of La Jolla, Calif., director of the National Latino Research Center (NLRC) and associate professor of Human Development at California State University at San Marcos, has been named to the U.S. Census Bureau's Advisory Committee on the Hispanic Population.
"I look forward to serving on this important committee and advising the Census Bureau on strategies that improve its ability to count our nation's Hispanic population," Soriano said in a statement.
As a member of the nine-person committee, Soriano will advise the Census Bureau on ways to achieve a more accurate and complete count of Hispanics or Latinos in the 2010 census and in the ongoing American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS currently is being tested in some areas of the country and is scheduled to go nationwide in 2003.
In addition to directing the NLRC and teaching and serving as chairperson of the Human Development Program at California State University at San Marcos, Soriano conducts research on adolescent development and its relationship to social problems, such as delinquency and violence. Soriano also served on the American Psychological Association's National Commission on Youth Violence and currently is a member of the National Committee for Latino Drug Abuse Research. He holds a doctorate in psychology from the University of Colorado.
Five race and ethnic advisory committees advise the Census Bureau on issues affecting Hispanics, African Americans, American Indians and Alaska Natives, Asians, and Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders. The committees are composed of members from the public at large, as well as representatives of national, state, local and tribal entities, and nonprofit and private-sector organizations.
