This study collected and examined data on the Hispanic population of the United States including demographic characteristics, such as age, gender distribution, economic indicators, and educational attainment. The study described the diversity within the Hispanic populations served by the nine study sites, and the implications of Hispanic diversity for program design, delivery, and evaluation.
Hispanic population in the United States is a varied and diverse group. This heterogeneity coupled with the needs of the Hispanic community creates enormous challenges for service delivery. It is important for organizations to understand the demographics of their target clientele and to adjust programming accordingly. A strategy, curriculum, or program that works with one group of Hispanics may or may not work with another community of Hispanics.
