Hispanic Diversity in New York City.
Gurak, Douglas T.; And Others
Hispanic Research Center: Research Bulletin, v3 n3 Jul 1980
This issue of the Hispanic Research Center's journal contains four articles which focus on various aspects of the Hispanic community in New York City. In the first article, Douglas T. Gurak and Lloyd H. Rogler use data from censuses, ethnographic accounts, and public documents to profile New York City's Hispanic population. They review the socioeconomic status of Hispanics at both the national level and within New York City, the impact of illegal migration on social services, and the assimilation of Hispanics through interethnic marriages. In another article, "Hispanic Migrants in New York: Work, Settlement and Adjustment," the authors provide an overview of an ongoing project on employment patterns, settlement/assimilation processes, and immigration as it relates to labor market theories. The third article, "Implications of Criminal Justice Administration: The Puerto Rican and Mexican-American Experiences," by Elizabeth Collado, reports on two seminar-workshops dealing with the Hispanic experience of criminal justice and the interrelationship between gangs, drugs, and prison in the Mexican-American "barrios" of Los Angeles. Finally, changing family structures, labor participation, and the health status of Hispanic females are the subjects of a research project and proposed conference discussed in the fourth article, "Research Issues: Family, Health, and Employment Patterns of Hispanic Women," by Ruth Zambrana.
