The phraseology you want is "average Latino income / average Anglo income."

I don't know that there is, although I'd be happy to be proved wrong. Certainly not in my area (coastal Southern California).

Anglo is a misnomer, most white people where I live are Irish or Italian.

"Anglo" doesn't mean "English," it means "white non-Hispanic American."

Certainly that's the original etymology, but in this context, it's not what it means any more. Irish- and Italian-Americans are Anglos.

Just like 'Hispanic' refers to a person who speaks Spanish or has recent ancestry in a Spanish speaking country, regardless of national origin or race, 'Anglo' refers to speakers of English, regardless of national origin or race.

Unless your Irish and Italian neighbors speak Gaelic and Italian, they would be considered to be Anglo in the vernacular of the American West.


tl;dr Anglo means English speaker

I agree with you, but Anglo is used to mean white even though not only white people speak English.

The term "Anglo" is synonymous with "white" in the American West because most original settlers were British- or Irish-Americans from the eastern half of the country. Remember, around 75-80% of Americans, including millions and millions of visible minorities, can trace their ancestry to the primarily English-speaking British Isles, hence the reason why an Anglo-Irish person is considered the "default American."
