Latinos are the largest racial/ethnic minority group in the U.S. and are among the fastest growing populations in New York State. However, there is variation across Latino sub-groups in educational attainment, income, and access to health insurance.
This research brief by Syracuse University’s Marc A. Garcia, Catherine García, and colleagues examines the diversity within the Latino population living in New York State and demonstrates the need to recognize the Latino population as a nonhomogeneous group.
