When it comes to social behaviors, US residents who hail from Latin America tend to be more social and team-oriented than the overall population. According to data from YouGov Profiles, people who are born in Latin American countries and now live in the US are more likely to have a wide social circle, generally prefer teamwork to working alone, and have a generally larger circle of friends.
When asked about their social circle, 27% of people born in Latin America (defined here as people born in Mexico, Central America, South America, or Latin Caribbean countries) say “I have a wide social circle, and I enjoy it.” Only 16% of the total population chose this same response. A large number of people in both groups (43% of Latin American-born and 41% of the total population) say that socializing is a part of their life, but not a main focus. While almost one-third (31%) of the total population said they “don’t mind socializing occasionally, but try to avoid it,” only 22% of Latin American-born people said the same.
