This report provides a descriptive snapshot of selected economic, social, educational and demographic indicators pertaining to Latinos in Salem, Beverly, Marblehead and Swampscott. It analyzes data from the 2008 American Community Survey (ACS) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The ACS's smallest geographic area is a Public Use Microdata Area (PUMA) consisting of a minimum census population of 100,000. 

In the PUMA for these cities, Salem and Beverly each accounted for approximately one third of the overall population in the 2000 Census. The majority of the Latino population (81.0%) lived in Salem in 2000, while 13.9% lived in Beverly. Thus, the Latino population in these cities will be referenced as the Salem-Beverly area throughout this report, although the data referenced also includes smaller Latino populations in Marblehead and Swampscott.
