Is Hispanic or Latino a considered a race on the census?

The census does not consider "Hispanic or Latino" a race. Federal standards set by the White House Office of Management and Budget require the census and other federal surveys to categorize "Hispanic or Latino" as an ethnicity to allow Latinx people to identify with any race. OMB has not made public whether it has approved a proposal to change how the census collects data on Latinx identity.
