Bressler, Tobia; And Others
In a sample survey in November of 1969, the U.S. Bureau of Census found that approximately 9.2 million persons living in the 50 states of the United States and the District of Columbia identified themselves as being of Spanish origin. Three characteristics--Spanish origin, mother tongue, and language usually spoken at home--were used to identify the Spanish population. The survey identified 5.1 million persons of Mexican origin; 1.5 million of Puerto Rican origin; 600,000 each of Cuban, and Central or South American origin; and 1.6 million of other Spanish origin. The report focuses on the social and economic characteristics of this population. The table of contents lists the following major divisions: (1) Type of Spanish Origin, (2) Language, (3) Educational Attainment and Literacy, (4) Employment Status and Occupation, and (5) Income. Tables are included in each division. (EJ)
