Data Tool: Unpacking Hispanic Diversity

Our interactive data tool allows users to unpack the diversity of the Hispanic population, separately for each data set, by giving you the capability to dig deeper into national surveys and see which include questions about citizenship, literacy, heritage, and more.

Each of the datasets reviewed are listed in the rows of the interactive tool and the specific data elements are listed in the columns. Each cell displays whether that dataset asked the respondent for information about the particular data element in that column. If a cell displays “YES,” then that dataset contains information on that data element. If a cell displays “NO,” then that dataset does not does not contain information on that data element. “PARTIAL” indicates that the dataset contains limited information on that particular data element. As you scroll your mouse across individual cells on the page, additional information will automatically be displayed indicating how the question was asked and answered (if YES or PARTIAL) within that particular dataset. If you click on “Show me more info on this dataset,” while still in the pop-up box, you then will be redirected to the relevant dataset webpage.

You may use the drop down menus on the right side of the page to sort the interactive table by dataset year and by specific data elements of interest.
