A new report published by the Utah Foundation details the current state of Utah’s Hispanic and Latino population in categories like housing, income, employment and education.

“El Estado de los Latinos en Utah: A look at Utah’s Hispanic/Latino Population” compared Utah’s Latino population to Utahns in general, as well as with Latinos living across the region. It found that Latinos in Utah have the highest median income in the Mountain States Region, but experience challenges in areas like education and childhood poverty.

“We actually have the largest gap in terms of the poverty rate for children between Utahns in general, and the Hispanic Latino population,” said Utah Foundation’s research director Shawn Teigen.
