Founded by The Pew Charitable Trusts in 2001, the Pew Hispanic Center is located in Washington, D.C., and has as its prime mission "to improve understanding of the U.S. Hispanic population and to chronicle Latinos' growing impact on the entire nation." To achieve this goal, the Center has embarked on a number of ambitious projects, including a regular program of research papers, performing an annual survey of Latino attitudes, and communicating these findings to policy-makers, business leaders, and various media organizations. Visitors to the site will want to take a look at the basic information about the Center, peruse the helpful daily news digest of items related to the Latino community in the U.S., and make sure to examine the publications section, which is divided by topic. There are quite a few publications (fact sheets, research reports, survey summaries) archived here, including the recent and timely survey on Latino attitudes towards education, which was released in January 2004.
