This week, the Pew Research Center released its recurring report on social media use among teens in the U.S. Among the survey's findings are some interesting insights on how young Latinos express themselves online.
Latinos, especially upwardly mobile millennials, have been shown by many studies to be "ahead of the digital curve" when it comes to being tuned into cutting edge digital media, as well as smartphone ownership and useage. In fact, Latinos own smartphones at a rate that's almost 10 percent higher than the U.S. national average, as we previously reported.
Nationwide, there are more than 17,000 public libraries and bookmobiles servicing 96 percent of the population, but foreign-born Latinos are least likely to utilize library services. That said, the foreign-born Latinos who visit the library greatly benefit from it, according to a new study.
Support for legalizing marijuana has increased over the years but most notably among Republican millennials. Legalizing marijuana is significantly more popular among millennials, regardless of political affiliation, but older age groups steadily show opposition to the concept.
The 114th Congress, just getting underway in Washington, DC to kick off 2015, has the strongest Latino representation ever on Capitol Hill; yet, despite the increased diversity, Congress still has a disproportionately white representation in comparison to the rapidly changing U.S. population, a new study states.
