The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) released its first-ever report analyzing the health of Latinos in New York City. The report outlines health outcomes across 51 indicators for the largest Latino heritage groups in New York City: Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Mexicans, and Central and South Americans. The report highlights key demographics, as well as socioeconomic, housing and neighborhood conditions that may impact the health of Latino New Yorkers, such as employment, education, rent burden and incarceration. Moreover, it examines three different critical public health areas: healthy living, health status and health care, and birth and death outcomes.
