This study focused on several factors that may create barriers to accessing medical care among the Latino population in California. As the Latino population is soon becoming the majority in California, it is important to understand what factors may create barriers and begin addressing them. The Introduction section presented three research questions to determine what factors are related to access to care. The Methodology section further discusses the overall survey details and the components extracted in order to perform the analysis. The study was limited to Latino adults, ages 18-85 years, in California. A multitude of variables will be tested against access to care, such as age, gender, citizenship status, income, language and transportation. To test each variable, lists of questions from the surveys were extracted to test in the results. The Results section indicated that all six variables were statistically significant when compared to access to care. The ranges of significance levels varied with each condition, however it was found that each were related and had some level of influence to access to care. The Discussion section provides recommendations for future directions in research. To determine whether these factors were ethnicity specific or were barriers in general, it was suggested to test each variable and compare the results with one or more ethnicities.
