New data book outlines Hispanic/Latino health

ts of health that are unique to Hispanic and Latino populations," Talavera said.

Results

The research found that the Hispanic and Latino population in the United States is diverse, not only in terms of ancestry, culture and economic status, but also in the prevalence of certain risk factors for disease. Some examples of findings shown in this Data Book are:

The percentage of people who reported having asthma ranged from 7.4 percent (Mexican) to 35.8 percent (Puerto Rican). The percentage of individuals with hypertension ranged from 20.3 percent (South American) to 32.2 percent (Cuban). The percentage of people eating five or more fruits/vegetables daily ranged from 19.2 percent (Puerto Rican) to 55 percent (Cuban). Also, men reported consuming more fruits and vegetables than women did. Women reported a much lower consumption of salt than did men among all Hispanic groups represented in the study.

While the study uncovered key differences among Hispanic and Latino adults, it also found some areas of more common importance for Hispanic health:

  • About one in three individuals had pre-diabetes, independent of Hispanic group of origin.
  • Only about half of individuals with diabetes among all Hispanic groups had it under control.
  • About half of Hispanics had neither diabetes nor pre-diabetes.

Later this year, researchers expect to reassess certain health measurements among the study participants to better understand the relationships between the risk factors identified during the first visit and eventual health outcomes in Hispanic and Latino populations.

Data collection: interviews and examinations

In the first phase of HCHS/SOL, between the years 2008 and 2011, study participants underwent an extensive clinical evaluation to identify the incidence of diseases and risk factors, as well as other important characteristics such as lifestyle an
