Assessing their health status and health needs is key to inform health policy formulation and program implementation.According to Velasco-Mondragon, Jimenez, Palladino-Davis, Davis, & Escamilla-Cejudo(2016), Hispanics comprised 17.4% of the US population (55.4 million), and this percentage is expected to increase to 28.6% (119 million) by 2060.
