Intra-Ethnic Racial Variations Among Latinos, Perceived Neighborhood Social Cohesion, and Psychological Distress: Utility of Empirical Intersectionality

Kasim Ortiz

Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S. Yet, little demographic attentiveness has been supplied to racial stratification among Latinos and how this shapes mental health. The current paper draws upon empirical intersectionality to assess intra-ethnic racial variations among Latinos and the mediating role of perceived neighborhood social cohesion. Utilizing several social demographic techniques, the current paper takes advantage of pooled data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS, 2013-2017).
