Third World Population in California. Intern Research Project.
California State Office of the Lieutenant Governor, Sacramento.
It is clear that California is rapidly becoming a State composed primarily of Third World minorities. Each year since 1970, minorities have increased by an average of 14.3 percent of the total population. Even though some minority groups go undetected, a good case can be made by those who wish to argue for a still higher percentage. The State and the Federal government have failed to recognize this emerging phenomena and consequently are, and will be, unprepared to meet the challenge to provide for this type of population realignment. By 1990, the majority of California's population will be minority peoples. Now is the time for responsible public policy-makers to begin implementation of necessary programs to accomodate these groups. (Author/EB)
