Some Current Population Trends.
Taeuber, Conrad
Population trends in the 1960's and early 1970's are examined in this 1972 speech in terms of overall national trends, the growth of metropolitan areas, the rural population, geographic shifts, internal migration, the black population, and living arrangements. It is noted that population growth in the 1960's was unevenly distributed within age groups and also unevenly distributed geographically. Some rural-urban differences are also discussed: urbanization of the blacks continued at a rapid rate; rural population declined; and, although migration was an important element in the differential growth rates of states and of areas within the states, in most areas the bulk of the increase was due to the excess of births over deaths. A major conclusion is that continued population growth, though at a lower rate than in the recent past, is indicated. (PS)
