graphical representation of ethnicity of the population

We ask a question about whether a person is of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin to create statistics about this ethnic group.

Local, state, tribal, and federal programs use these data, and they are critical factors in the basic research behind numerous policies, particularly for civil rights. Data on the Hispanic and non-Hispanic populations are used in planning and funding government programs that provide funds or services for specific groups.
