Recent Hispanic Polls: A Summary of Results.
McKay, Emily G.
Summarized in this document are findings from several recent surveys of Hispanic Americans. Each of the surveys had a different purpose and their samples were extremely varied. None had a sample design which would allow results to be generalized to reflect the attitudes or characteristics of the overall U.S. Hispanic population. Each, however, provides valuable insights into certain segments of the Hispanic community. The report summarizes survey findings about (1) education, employment, voter participation, and other issues and problems considered by respondents to be of importance to their community or to Hispanics nationwide; (2) language use and media habits; and (3) entities and institutions which might serve the needs of Hispanics. A full list of the surveys reviewed is appended. (CMG)
