Most survey questions do not reflect the complex ways that Latino ethnicity and race interact. In this webinar recording, Drs. Julie Dowling and Mark Hugo Lopez discuss the research pertaining to the measurement of race and ethnicity in the U.S. Census and across other surveys. Specifically, they discuss the following:

  1. Conceptual issues surrounding the measurement of race and ethnicity in Latino populations
  2. Challenges with current approaches to measuring race and ethnicity among Latino populations
  3. Proposed solutions for measuring racial and ethnic identity more accurately, including the measurement of mixed-race identity.
