Latinos in Pennsylvania: Building A Secure Economic Future
MetadataShow full item record
Latino Pennsylvanians represent the fastest-growing minority group in the Keystone State. Between 2010 and 2015, the Hispanic population in Pennsylvania grew by 20%, (by contrast, the non-Hispanic population in Pennsylvania remained the same). At a time when Pennsylvania’s economy continues to see slow gains in recovery from the Great Recession, the economic status of the growing Hispanic population is increasingly important. The Hispanic community’s youth, work ethic, and industrious spirit contribute to and strengthen the state’s economy. However, a growing number of Latino families in Pennsylvania face a mixed picture of progress, setbacks, and stalled growth.
