Dr. Vargas co-authored recent study surveying Americans about identifying as “Latinx”
April 2, 2021
Dr. Nicholas Vargas, LAS core faculty professor, recent co-authored “Who Identifies as ‘Latinx?’ The Generational Politics of Ethnoracial Labels.” The article presents analysis of results from a recent survey completed by the Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) at the University of California, Berkeley.
“As researchers, we understand that individuals are complex, and might use different labels at different times,” Vargas said. “Our survey question thus moved away from asking whether folks use Latino/Hispanic or Latinx – and instead explored if, and how frequently, they might use either – or both.”
