We asked the study participants to identify the terms that New Mexicans of Spanish-speaking descent use to describe themselves. The terms they most frequently listed were Chicano, Hispanic, Latino, Mexican, Mexican American, Spanish, and Nuevomexicano. Select a trait to compare in two groups. Then, select two different identity group terms below and view the results.
