Univision, News Report, Posted: Dec 11, 2009

New York A new study by the Pew Center reveals that the median age of Latinos in the United States is 27 years, making them the youngest ethnic group in the country, reports Univision. By comparison, the median is 31 for African-Americans, 36 for Asian ethnic groups and 41 for whites. The study also concluded that two-thirds of all Latinos aged 16 to 25 in the country were born in the United States, a challenge to the perception that a majority of Latinos are immigrants. The study, based on a survey of 16 to 25 year old Latinos, also revealed that 52 percent of respondents identify themselves with their parents country of origin, while just 24 percent identify with the United States.
