This document consists of four separately-published fact sheets providing information, derived from U.S. government sources, about the condition of Hispanics in the United States. The first, "Hispanic Children, Poverty, and Federal Assistance Programs," describes the status of Hispanic American children and the federal programs designed to help them. The second, "Hispanic Employment and Earnings Fact Sheet," shows the employment rates and income averages for Hispanic men and women in the United States. Information gathered for this report shows that Hispanics had the lowest median personal income and remained the poorest group of U.S. residents in 1996. "Hispanic Male Fact Sheet" presents details about the employment, education, and health status of Hispanic men in the United States. "Hispanic Poverty Fact Sheet" contains information about Hispanic Americans and poverty. Taken together, these fact sheets paint a picture of a group with less education on the average, lower income, and higher overall poverty rates than other minorities in the United States. The numbers of Hispanic American children are increasing, but their educational, poverty, and health status is not. (SLD)
