Recently, we have been developing extensive custom tabulations of the American Community Survey for Latinos. This work will result in an extensive number of customized tabulations on Latinos from 2008 to 2015 for the United States and each of the 50 states plus the District of Columbia. The approach we have created is to have identical tabulations for the U.S. and each area. The general areas of analysis are: Population (e.g., by Latino, Race-Latino, Median Age, Sex, Generation, 5-year Age Cohorts); Citizenship; Work, Labor Force Participation, Class of Workers, Youth-Prime Age-Senior, Military by Service Area and Industry; Real Income for all major earned and unearned income categories; Education; Language Spoken at Home; Household Type and Marital Status; Poverty and Public Assistance Participation; Private and Public Health Insurance Coverage; and Disability Status.
Our initial charts for Arizona are available by clicking the chart on the right. We will update as more data and charts become available.
Once we have completed the full complement of data tabulations and associated charts we will add data for 2016 which is just becoming available.
Points of note regarding the American Community Survey. This is 1% percent sample of the entire US population and is conducted by the U.S. Bureau of the Census. Our work is to custom tabulate and chart the data but we do not in any way modify or adjust the statistical tabulations. Also, while this is the largest and most reliable source for these data, in some states the actual sample sizes may be small. For example, an estimate of 1,000 is only based on about 10 respondents. That said, the Census Bureau develops individual person weights for each individual in each household. A final point is that the weightings for the American Community Survey changed in 2010 along with the 2010 Census. There is a slight shift between 2009 and 2010 showing an one-time increase in Latinos. Users are cautioned to consider this in their analysis.

The question for policy makers, public and private, at the national and state levels is simply this: Are the appropriate investments being made in the young Latino population to maximize its ability to carry the country, including the burden of the retired Baby Boom generation, into the 21st century?
