Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Juan Ruiz, a leading analyst in the Hispanic Insights sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

As Hispanics account for nearly 20% of the US population, they are intrinsically present in groups and communities across the US. How Hispanics meet the people that make up their social circles, in addition to the factors that strengthen them, shows how both groups and communities are multidimensional, with trust and familiarity as a foundation. Groups and communities across the US are becoming increasingly multicultural, and Hispanics are both having an influence on and are influenced by other cultures Juan Ruiz
