Latinas comprise a vibrant and highly visible segment of California’s multi-ethnic population. They are playing a critical role in California’s economy as their numbers increase. California’s fast-growing Latino population reached over 14 million in 2010, with just under half, or 6.95 million, being Latinas. One in every three females in the state is a Latina. By 2020, Hispanics will be 40.8% of the state population.
The Economic Status of Latinas Report examines how Latinas have weathered the challenging economic conditions of the Great Recession that started in late 2007 and their opportunities for future economic success, based on survey findings and demographic and economic indicators.
