2017: The Economic Status of Latinas Report 2

A Snapshot of the Nation, California and the HOPE Sample

Latinas now represent 8.7% of the total US population and 19.2% of California’s total population with projections calling for sustained growth over the coming decades. Latinas not only make an impact across California and the United States in sheer numbers, but they also continue to drive small business creation, break educational attainment records and increase their already substantial buying power. The economic well-being of Latinas is inextricably tied to the economic well-being of the country and state as a whole, making the study and promotion of Latina’s economic contributions crucial in understanding the economic future of California and the United States.

The Economic Status of Latinas Report - A Snapshot of the Nation, California and the HOPE Sample (a group of over 500 Latina women surveyed by HOPE) paints a picture of the increasing impact and role Latinas have the state and U.S. economy highlighting their increased business ownership and millennial Latinas, yet also highlighting how wage disparities and college debt challenges are factors that affect Latinas’ trajectory towards economic success.
