Abstract: This survey was designed to explore the attitudes and experiences of Latinos on a wide variety of topics. The data set contains perceptions about identity, views about life in the United States, experiences with discrimination, both from within the Hispanic community, and from non-Hispanic groups, language abilities and preferences, economic and financial conditions, and experiences with the health care system. The survey also explored differences in the attitudes and experiences of Latinos from various places of origin including Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans, Salvadorans, and Colombians.

The survey was conducted by telephone between April 4 and June 11, 2002, among a nationally representative sample of adults, 18 years and older, who were selected at random. Observations include 2,929 Latinos and 1,284 non-Latinos.
