The terms Hispanic and Latino refer to an ethnicity sharing a common history, culture, and language. Hispanics are often defined as people from Spain or any country that is Spanish speaking in Latin America. The term Latino has more varied definitions that generally include people from Latin American. Hispanic Americans and Latino Americans make up more than 17% of the U.S. population with over 53 million Hispanics and Latinos living in the U.S.

 

Hispanic and Latin Americans come from diverse social, economic, and geographic backgrounds making them all very different depending on their family heritage and national origin. However, there some cultural similarities that tend to bring these diverse backgrounds together.
