 American Family . About the Family. What It Means to Be Latino PBS
To be a Latino means that in the 2000 U.S. census, you were counted as one of 35.3 million people, of any race, classified as “Hispanic,&; and that you were part of a group that comprised 12.5% of the total U.S. population.
The term “Hispanic&; is often used interchangeably with the term “Latino.” The term “Hispanic&; was introduced into the English language and into the 1970 census by government officials who were searching for a generic term that would include all who came from, or who had parents who came from, Spanish-speaking countries.
Finally, being Latino means you are a part of one or more groups that have their own unique cuisine, music, and cultural and artistic traditions.

 INTERRACIAL VOICE - Guest Editorial (Naomi Zack)
In March 2000, when government began distributing the census forms, the New York Times reported that the five racial categories and their possible combinations would yield sixty-three recognized racial categories, a number that would be doubled by the options in the "Spanish/Hispanic/Latino" category.
The lack of either explicitly structured taxonomies or criteria for membership in specific categories suggests that those who composed the census form assumed that Americans have unequivocal and ready answers to questions about their identities in the Spanish/Hispanic/Latino category, and in terms of race.
As David Goldberg argues, although the U.S. Census is now broadly regarded as a valuable resource for corporate planning and a basis for various government allocations and representation, it has not provided a stable system of racial categorization from decade to decade.

 Court Strikes Down Census Bureau's Statistical Sampling Plan - Aug. 24, 1998
African-American and Latino groups say headcounts like the 1990 census undercount their true numbers because urban populations are hard to reach, and people don't always trust the motives of census-takers -- government employees paid to ask personal questions.
The Census Bureau, which was joined in its defense by Democratic members of Congress, the city of Los Angeles, and other groups, tried to prove that a 1976 amendment to that law leaves it to the discretion of the bureau as to how they count the population.
The House Republicans who filed suit against the Department of Commerce, the governmental parent of the Census Bureau, cited a 1957 law, designed at the time to update and expand the work of the Census Bureau, which said sampling can be used "except for the determination of population for apportionment purposes.
