11.7 million Latinos voted in 2018
May 30, 2019
More than half of U.S. eligible voters cast a ballot in 2018, the highest turnout rate for a midterm election in recent history, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The increased turnout was particularly pronounced among Hispanics and Asians, making last year’s midterm voters the most racially and ethnically diverse ever.
National Survey of Latinos awarded the 2019 Inclusive Voices Award at the annual American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) conference
During the conference awards banquet, Director of Global Migration and Demography Research Mark Hugo Lopez and Senior Researcher Ana Gonzalez-Barrera accepted AAPOR’s inaugural “Inclusive Voices Award” for the Center’s National Survey of Latinos. The award notes, “The NSL has been vital in highlighting and understanding the wide differences in opinions among Latinos born abroad and those born in the U.S. The NSL has also provided new ways of thinking about survey methodology with regard to the study of the U.S. Hispanic population, and our understanding of Hispanic public opinion has been enlightened by these efforts.”
