Latinos in the Silver State: Building a Better Future
MetadataShow full item record
Latino Nevadans represent a growing and influential population in the Silver State. One out of every three Nevadans is now Hispanic and that number is on the rise. These demographic trends fuel estimates that Nevada will reach a majority-minority status by 2019, long before the estimate for the nation as a whole to reach that status in 2050. The Hispanic community’s youth, strong work ethic, and entrepreneurial spirit contribute to Nevada’s success. Yet a growing number of Latino families in Nevada face a mixed picture of progress, setbacks, and stalled growth.
