The communities in which Hispanics live are increasingly diverse, both in location and character. The characteristics of these communities have implications for the well-being of Hispanic children and families, both positive and negative (e.g., access to healthy food and green space, exposure to violence, and more). In this brief, we review the changing geography of Hispanics in the United States and discuss the key demographic drivers of these changes.
