This report provides a descriptive snapshot of selected economic, social, educational, and demographic indicators pertaining to Latinos in the cities of Chelsea, Revere, and Winthrop. This report is prepared for the 2010 Statewide Latino Public Policy Conference organized by UMass Boston’s Mauricio Gastón Institute for Latino Community Development and Public Policy. It is part of a larger series that covers fourteen cities, or clusters of cities, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Each report analyzes data from the 2008 American Community Survey (ACS) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The ACS’s smallest geographic area is a Public Use Microdata Area (PUMA) consisting of a minimum census population of 100,000. Revere is the PUMA’s largest city accounting for 47.0% of its population in 2000, while Chelsea (34.8%) and Winthrop (18.2%) account for the remainder of the population. The majority of the Latino population live in Chelsea (76.6%), while 20.6% live in Revere and 2.8% in Winthrop. Thus, the Latino population in these cities will be referenced as the Chelsea-Revere area throughout this report, although the data referenced does include the smaller Latino population in Winthrop as well.
