A Snapshot of the Values, Views & Faith of Hispanic Americans

According to the United States Census Bureau, as of 2017, Hispanics made up the largest ethnic minority in the U.S., with 58.9 million Hispanic-Americans representing percent of our national population. This culturally diverse group has roots in a variety of Hispanic countries, the largest percentages hailing from Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, among others. Over the years, Barna has kept up with Hispanic faith trends in the U.S. (and, more recently, abroad). In light of Hispanic Heritage month, observed every year from September 15 to October 15 in celebration of the cultures and histories of the American Latino community, we want to offer a general profile of Hispanic Americans today.
