Hispanic Heritage Month is a date to honor all Latinos who have left a great contribution to the United States. To say it could be a simple task, but the numbers could explain it better: which nationalities have been residing in the country for more years, which groups have immigrated the most in recent years, and who earns more?
A CNN special report highlights, interesting data from the Pew Research Center. It points out that there are almost 60 million Hispanics in the United States, within which 29 years old is the average age, 79% have citizenship, 33% were born outside the U.S. and 47% are owners.
In terms of years of residence, with almost 37 million people, Mexicans are the largest group of Hispanics in the country. Approximately 4 out of 5 Hispanic immigrants, or 78%, have lived in the U.S. for more than 10 years.
According to the statistics, Panamanians, with 88%, and Mexicans, with 84%, are those who have been more years in the United States. Meanwhile, Venezuelans, with 58%, and Spaniards, with 38%, are the ones with the shortest time of residence in the U.S., with less than 10 years.
Above average annual income, Argentines lead the table with $68,000, nearly $20,000 more than the average for Latinos.
They are followed by Spaniards with $65,000, Peruvians with $61,200, Ecuadorians with $61,000, Nicaraguans with $59,000, Colombians with $58,600, Panamanians with $57,830, Venezuelans with $53.Salvadorans with $52,000, Cubans with $49,200, Mexicans with $49,000, Puerto Ricans with $44,300, Guatemalans with $44,000, Dominicans with $43,000 and Hondurans with $41,000.
Regarding Hispanics with university education, Venezuelans stand out with 55%, followed by Argentines with 43%, Spaniards with 36%, Panamanians with 34% and finally Colombians with 33%.
The groups with the least professional qualifications are Guatemalans and Salvadorans with 10%, Hondurans with 11% and Mexicans with 12%.
Hispanic Media, which has consistently been an important part of this event, will close with a very special event: The celebration in Philadelphia of the Hispanic Heritage Month Gala on October 18.
Goya and PECO, along with other prestigious partners, will join Hispanic Media to honor five Latin American descendants whose contributions and labors have improved the living conditions of many of the immigrants who work and prosper in Philadelphia.
To celebrate this important event, Hispanic Media selected a location embedded in a romantic and luxurious atmosphere of ancestral evocation, which only the Crystal Tea Room can offer. It is located at 100 Penn Square East Wanamaker Building – 9Th Floor -PA 19107.
