Bureau of the Census (DOC), Suitland, MD.
Data on a variety of social and economic characteristics for persons and families in the United States of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and other Spanish origin and comparative data for the remaining population were selected from the March 1972 Bureau of the Census Current Population Survey (CPS). Revisions in the March 1972 CPS, as compared to the 1970 CPS, include the introduction of 1970 census-based population controls and metropolitan residence definition, the use of 1970 census sampling materials for part of the sample, a change in the average segment size from 6 to 4 housing units for part of the sample, and a change in the first stage ratio estimation procedure. The 10 tables contain information concerning (1) U.S. population by ethnic origin; (2) age distribution by ethnic origin; (3) characteristics of families by ethnic origin; (4) percent of the population 25 years old and over who had completed less than 5 years of school or 4 years of high school or more, by ethnic origin; (5) labor force participation of persons 16 to 64 years old, by age, sex, and ethnic origin; (6) unemployment rates for persons 16 to 64 years old, by age, sex, and ethnic origin; (7) employed men 16 years old and over, by major occupation and ethnic origin; (8) median income in 1971 by years of school completed for males 25 years old and over by ethnic origin; (9) family income in 1971 by ethnic origin; and (10) low-income status in 1971 of persons of Spanish origin for the U.S. and 5 southwestern states.
