\description{
The Hispanic-white wage gap is the percent by which hourly wages of Hispanic workers

(Hispanic workers' share of white workers' wages) by subtracting the gap from 100 percent.
}
\details{
\itemize{
\item{A median Hispanic-white wage gap of 29.6 percent means that a typical Hispanic
worker is paid 29.6 percent less per hour than a typical white worker.}
\item{An average Hispanic-white wage gap of 30.1 percent means that on average Hispanic
workers are paid 30.1 percent less per hour than white workers.}
\item{A regression-based Hispanic-white wage gap of 11.1 percent means that on average
Hispanic workers are paid 11.1 percent less per hour than white workers, all
else held equal (controlling for gender, race and ethnicity, education,
experience, and geographic location).}
