Nebraska's Hispanic and Latino population has nearly doubled in the last decade, reaching just under ten percent. But despite that rapid growth, we don't really know much about Latino Nebraskans' development. Lisa Crockett, professor of psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is looking to change that. She's heading a federally funded study looking at rural and urban Latino youth in Nebraska and how they're faring. NET News reporter Hilary Stohs-Krause talked with the professor about the study and possible challenges.
