Hispanic Institute

The Child Trends Hispanic Institute provides timely and insightful research-based information and guidance to improve outcomes for Latino children. A fast-growing and diverse segment of the U.S. population, Latinos now represent 16 percent of our nation’s population and 25 percent of children.

We provide policymakers, practitioners, the media, corporate leaders, and private philanthropy with knowledge about Latino children, youth and families in the U.S. to help inform decision making. We do this by providing statistical portraits of Hispanic children and youth, expanding the evidence base  by developing and conducting evaluations of programs aimed at Latinos, and building the data infrastructure on Hispanic children and youth.
