dc.description.abstractThe objective of this study was to determine the main drinking water sources for Latino parents and their children in Chicago and surrounding areas, as well as to determine differences between Latino and Non-Latino groups’ drinking water sources. Parents and legal guardians were asked to complete an anonymous survey with questions on demographics and drinking water sources. The survey was provided in both English and Spanish versions. Data collection was completed at 213 surveys obtained, comprised of 115 Latino and 98 Non-Latino respondents. Data analysis showed no significant differences between Latino and Non-Latino respondents in terms of bottled water consumption (p > 0.05). Both groups reported high bottled water use. Significant differences were found between the groups in reported use of filtered water. Latino respondents, particularly those born outside of the U.S., reported a greater use of filtered tap water for consumption and cooking than all other groups. In addition, Latino respondents, especially those born outside of the U.S., reported that their children drink more filtered tap water and less unfiltered tap water than all other groups.en_US
