Chicago's Spanish-Speaking Population: Selected Statistics.
Chicago Dept. of Development and Planning, IL.
Based on selected data from the 1970 census, this report provides a general description of Chicago's Spanish-speaking population's: (1) general population characteristics; (2) age and family characteristics; (3) income; (4) labor force characteristics; (5) education; and (6) housing. Using the Census Bureau's definition of Spanish speaking (all persons whose mother tongue is Spanish), the report covers geographic distribution, migration patterns, ethnic and racial composition, citizenship, age, family size and structure, employment status, occupation, industry, earnings, transportation to work, income, poverty status, per capita income, academic achievement, persons per room, plumbing facilities, renters, and home owners. Comparisons are made to the: (1) suburban portion of the 8-county Chicago metropolitan area--Cook, DuPage, McHenry, Kane, Lake, and Will Counties in Illinois; Lake and Porter Counties in Indiana; (2) major cities of New York, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Miami, and Houston which have large Spanish-speaking populations; and (3) national totals. Comparisons are also made to Chicago's non-Spanish-speaking population where meaningful and to 1960 Census data where possible. (NQ)
