    Taking a Closer Look at Latino Pan-ethnic Identity
    A blog published by Dr. Gabriel Sanchez, on the Latino Decisions blog site on April 18, 2012. The blog highlights a recent report released by the Pew Hispanic Center indicating that the pan-ethnic terms of Latino and Hispanic do not resonate well with the population that they are intended to define. More specifically, a majority (51%) say that they most often identify themselves by their family's country of origin (Mexican/Mexican American for example) compare to just 24% who prefer a pan-ethnic label. These numbers are helpful in determining the extent to which a pan-ethnic identity exists within the Latino/Hispanic population, but do not provide a comprehensive depiction of the complexitities associated with Latino identity.
