About Rogelio Sáenz


Rogelio Sáenz is a leader in research and training related to racial-ethnic stratification in the United States, particularly as it affects Latine communities. He has written extensively on Latine American issues, including race, inequality, immigration, COVID-19 disparities, aging, and social justice. Demography, race and ethnicity, and social inequality intersect at the heart of Sáenz’s research, which has strengthened understanding of the health and well-being of the United States’ Latine population. His work goes beyond core demographic outcomes to cover topics like immigrant integration, intermarriage, psychological well-being, and public health.
