Abstract: This survey was conducted by telephone between June 30 and August 30, 1999. Fieldwork was conducted by International Communications Research. This was a study of a nationally representative sample of 4,614 adults, 18 years and older, including 2,417 Latinos and 2,197 non-Latinos. Among the non-Latinos were 1,802 non-Latino white adults and 285 non-Latino black adults. Respondents were selected at random. It examines Latino attitudes regarding values, politics, race relations and social policies and compares those attitudes to non-Latino whites and blacks. In addition it provides a closer look at Latino immigrant perceptions of U.S. culture and their adoption of American customs. The large scope of the study allows for comparisons to be made between Latinos born in the U.S. to those born outside and among Latinos with different national backgrounds.
