Persons of Spanish Origin in the United States: March 1972 and 1971. Population Characteristics. Current Population Reports.
Seraile, Elmore J.; And Others
Based on data collected in March 1972 and March 1971 by the Bureau of Census as a supplement to its monthly Current Population Survey, this publication reports on persons of Spanish origin in the United States. The data were derived from replies to a question on origin or descent and on replies to additional questions on other population characteristics. The sample was spread over 449 areas comprising 863 counties and independent cities with coverage in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The estimating procedure used involved the inflation of the weighted sample results to independent estimates of the civilian noninstitutional population of the United States by age, rece, and sex. The independent estimates were based on statistics from the previous decennial population census; statistics of births, deaths, immigration and emigration; and statistics on the strength of the Armed Forces. The tables give statistical data on such characteristics as demographic characteristics, age, sex, use of the Spanish language in the home, family status, size of families, place of residence, educational attainment, employment status, occupation group, and income. Demographic, social, and economic characteristics are presented separately and in some combinations for persons who identified themselves as being of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish origin.
