The latest U.S. census did not get an accurate count of Latinos living in the U.S. The survey asked respondents to identify their race, but many Latinos checked “some other race.” That’s because the 2020 census considers “Latino” and “Hispanic” to be ethnicities, not races, leaving Latinos with racial categories that they often felt did not apply to them. The undercount of Latinos has dire implications, since the census data is used to fund programs and enforce anti-discrimination laws. Listen to learn more about census race categories and how the questions could be changed for a more accurate count.
