The New York Puerto Rican: Patterns of Work Experience. Poverty Area Profiles. Regional Reports: Bedford-Stuyvesant; Central Harlem; East Harlem; South Bronx. Number 19.
This is the third in a series of analytical reports on findings in 1968-69 of the Urban Employment Survey. The Survey was designed to develop information on employment, unemployment, and work-related problems of the working-age population residing in the major poverty areas of several large cities. The present report focuses on the labor market experience and economic status of Puerto Ricans in New York City's poverty areas. Particular concern attaches to the findings that the incomes of Puerto Ricans were lower than those of Negroes or whites; that they had the highest unemployment rate; and that many other indicators of their social and economic status were unfavorable.
