The Census uses the terms "Spanish," "Hispanic origin" and "Latino" interchangeably. These terms indicate that a person identifies him or herself as Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban or is one whose origins are from Spain, the Spanish-speaking countries of Central or South America or the Dominican Republic. According to the Census Bureau, "Origin can be viewed as the heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of birth of the person or the person's parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States," and may be of any race. For comparison purposes, all Hispanics are grouped together regardless of race, while they are not included in any of the following categories.
