Description

HISPAN identifies persons of Hispanic/Spanish/Latino origin and classifies them according to their country of origin when possible. Origin is defined by the Census Bureau as ancestry, lineage, heritage, nationality group, or country of birth. People of Hispanic origin may be of any race; see RACE for a discussion of coding issues involved.

The HISPAN general code covers country-of-origin classifications common to all years; the detailed code distinguishes additional groups and subgroups.

HISPAN is only available for the United States censuses.
