Latinos in Metropolitan Chicago: A Study of Housing and Employment. Monograph 6.
Latino Inst., Chicago, IL.
The problems confronting Latinos (or Hispanic Americans) in the Chicago area today, with particular emphasis on housing and job opportunities, are the subject of this report. A brief history of Latino settlement in Chicago is followed by a discussion of selected Latino socioeconomic characteristics in 1980. Residential distribution, residential segregration, housing conditions, and subsidized housing programs are then discussed in turn. A chapter on education is followed by chapters on Latinos in the labor force, occupational and industrial trends, Latinos in city jobs, and Latino participation in programs funded by the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA). An appendix contains data about population, income, housing, education, language use, and jobs. (CMG)
