The Latino GDP Project: Los Que Superan | Those Who Overcome
The Latino GDP Project provides a factual view of the large and rapidly growing economic contribution of Latinos living in the United States.Join David Hayes-Bautista, PhD, and Matthew Fienup, PhD, as they discuss this narrative-changing research.
Using publicly available data from major U.S. agencies, it provides compelling evidence that Latinos are drivers of economic growth and a critical source of resilience for the U.S. economy. The total economic output (or GDP) of Latinos in the U.S. was $2.8 trillion in 2020, equivalent to the world’s fifth largest GDP. The hard work and persistence of Latinos bolstered the nation’s economy during the pandemic and are now driving economic recovery.
