Enhancing the Quality of Life for Hispanic Individuals Through Career Preparation
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education
With the rapid population increase of Hispanic (Spanish, Latin American, or Spanish Indian heritage) individuals in the United States, ensuring economic prosperity and stability of this group is critical. This should include increasing their dwindling participation in agriculture-related fields. Hispanic youths often overlook an agriculture-related career, which promises economic prosperity and stability. This census study, using an ex post facto research design and a mailed survey, identified factors regarding Hispanic and African American (native U.S. citizens of African descent) college graduates’ decisions to choose or decline an agriculture-related career prior to and/or after college. © 2005, Sage Publications.
