Pew Hispanic Center today released a fact sheet that provides a breakdown of the 2006 mid-term election. It is based on Census data that has recently become available and includes the most up-to-date data on population and the electorate.
This fact sheet is based on data from a supplement of the Current Population Survey (CPS) that is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau every November of an election year. The survey asks whether individuals were registered to vote and whether they actually voted but does not probe for party or candidate preferences.
The fact sheet compares the two most recent mid-term elections: November 2006 and November 2002. It includes data on population and the electorate for Latinos as well as for whites and blacks.
